Excerpt from A Voyage to China, Vol. 1 of 2: Including a Visit to the Bombay Presidency; The Mahratta Country; The Cave Temples of Western India, Singapore, the Straits of Malacca and Sunda, and the Cape of Good Hope

In the following pages I have noted down such occurrences and incidents as came under my own personal observation, during the long voyage over the world of waters that intervenes between the English shores and China - a country perhaps s second only in extent to the gigantic empire which stretches north and south over the whole continent of Eastern Europe, as well as over that of Western Asia - but of infinitely greater consequence to us in a commercial point of view, the more particularly, since the late war, when the cession of Hong Kong has had the effect of increasing our commerce and relations with that part of the world.
