Abstract: In 1847 Henry Lushington was appointed Chief Secretary in Malta. During the turbulent years of the Italian Risorgimento, British liberal policies allowed a steady flow of Italian political refugees to enter Malta and a small community of exiles lived in Valletta. In 1849 a ship of refugees was not allowed to land by the Governor of Malta Richard More O'Ferrall, which led to an outcry in the British liberal press. This paper gives an overview of Lushington's life and literary output, including writing linked to his years in Malta.
