This chapter presents an English-language translation of Antoine Zuchet’s correspondence with the Dutch Republic during the Tripolitanian War between America and Tripoli (The First Barbary War). Zuchet was a Representative of the Dutch Republic, originally from Livorno and living in Tripoli during the war. His detailed account serves as a counter-balance to the records from the American Navy which reflect a certain level of nationalist bias. Zuchet’s account as a neutral party displays sympathy for American hostages; remarks on poor, naive, and incoherent choices made by American naval officers and diplomats; and condemns Tripolitanian leader Yusuf Karamanli as a tyrant.
