Excerpt from Peep at China, in Mr. Dunn's Chinese Collection: With Miscellaneous Notices Relating to the Institutions and Customs of the Chinese, and Our Commercial Intercourse With Them
The author of these sheets has never been in China, and yet he has attempted, to some extent, a development of Chinese character and customs. It is a fair claim on the part of the reader that he be informed of the degree of credibility that attaches to the statements made. With the view solely of satisfying this claim, he takes leave to say, that numerous works on China, of the highest re pute, have been fully consulted, and the truth carefully sought.
