When Egypt under Muhammad Ali Pasha tried to break away from the Ottoman Empire, Britain joined the Ottomans, Russians, Austrians and Prussians to crush his rebellion. After shelling Sidon and Beirut in September 1840 the Allied fleet moved to Acre: opening fire on the city on the 3rd November they hit the defender's magazine, blowing up sixty thousand square yards of buildings and killing 1,200. They continued firing until dusk, taking possession of the city the following day. Muhammad Ali finally accepted terms on the 27th.

This was without the permission of his employers, the Admiralty, who sacked him, although they still paid him to complete nine full oil paintings of his sketches of Australia.

Many of Garrick's books also went to the British Museum to form an important part of the British Library's collection of early plays.

He and his wife showed visitors round and even installed a replica statue in the Temple in the grounds (to left).
