The narrative of the shipwreck of the Juno on the coast of Aracan (Burma) in 1795 was written by William Mackay , who was Second Officer on that ship. Published as a pamphlet in 1798 it fell into the hands of Lord Byron when he was a schoolboy and made such an impression on him that years later. when he wrote the shipwreck scene in Don Juan , he incorporated the main incident of this narrative.
Many of those 19th-century writers who had read the original narrative considered its prose superior to Byron's poetic adaptation.
