Mehmet Ali (1769-1849) meeting with a group of Europeans including the British Consul Major-General Patrick Campbell (17791857), Lieut. Waghorn and Roberts himself. Roberts did not have his pencil, so he reconstructed this scene from memory. Although this was an informal meeting, the Europeans were worried that Mehmet Ali was going to declare independence from the Ottoman Empire. The following year (1840) the British Navy blockaded the Nile Delta, forcing Mehmet Ali to accept a compromise, in which he was given hereditary rule of Egypt as an Ottoman viceroy.
