They spent the years 1710-14 at Bender in Moldavia, near the Black Sea, after Charles's defeat by the Russians at Poltava. During his stay at Bender, Charles spent all his time trying to enlist Turkish aid against the Russians. Fabrice wrote a series of letters describing their experiences to the Duke of Holstein and the Baron de Görtz. These letters owe their publication mainly to the efforts of Voltaire, who used them in his History of Charles XII." (Blackmer) Blackmer 568. cfAtabey 413.
