On March 19, 1819, not far from Abu Simbel, the eight oared boat of Captain Foskett passed by the little boat of John Fuller and Nathaniel Pearce. He suggested to take their boat in tow([i]). We can assume that from then on they did their travelling together([ii]). No further biographical information.
