This was a time of change in the area: Pease saw the arrival of King Otto in the new Greek kingdom; he commented on the turbulent affairs of the Near East under Muhammad Ali; he was himself involved in the movement for social and intellectual reform in Cyprus. Keenly observant, curious, well-educated and a born linguist, Pease filled his diaries with accounts of the places and people he saw - customs, monuments, education and religious life, metereology and geology: for much he provides a unique and well-informed witness. He writes, too, of his mission, of the work of his fellow missionaries within the Ottoman Empire, and of his family - two of his children lie buried with him in Cyprus.
