Excerpt from Missionaries in China
The friends of the author of the following essay, to whose care it has been intrusted for publication, consider that a few introductory remarks regarding the events which have been the immediate cause of its production may be of use to English readers, whose information regarding the recent riots in China must necessarily be slight and vague. Knowledge of foreign countries, even those with which we have constant communication and important interests, is not so general as it ought to be, and comparatively few persons in England comprehend how closely this country is touched by any occurrence that might lead to estrangement or rupture between England and China.
