This seems to be a Chinese medical missionary, made the journey from Vladivostock, on the Pacific coast, to the German frontier, over the great Post-Road and in part by the Yenisei and Obi rivers, a distance of about 5,000 miles. As an important section of the Siberian railway has been opened since, he was one of the very last Englishmen to make this journey in the old-fashioned way. He gives a vivid conception of the growth and consolidation of the Russian Empire, of the vast and, in large part, fertile regions of Siberia, with its strangely mixed nomad and settled populations, and its sad contingent of political and criminal exiles.

–Methodist Magazine, Volume 45 [1897]
