The consul of France in Smyrna sent a reclamation to Psara but the Psariotes sent back the ship in Chios with a letter to the Pasha asking 3000 piastres in order to release a Muslim captured by the Greeks. The Austrian consul interceded and the Muslim was finally freed describing his adventure. He was alone in a Turkish ship from Crete in the port of Tshesme.
