Abstract: In one of his last letters Dun Mikiel Xerri exhorted his Maltese compatriots to "act quickly before the French banish me from the city". After advising them what they should do to avoid misunderstanding and ensure the success of the uprising inside Valletta, Dun Mikiel ended by declaring that " I am doing this for my country for l fear that for me this will be the last deed as I am attempting more than anybody else who because of fear does not dare to obey my orders. I do not regret it ; if all goes well l die a happy man".
