Excerpt from China, During the War and Since the Peace
The two portions of this work, though con secutive in point of time, and so far connected, are materially different in other respects. The first is, in fact, a Chinese History, founded on native documents not intended for our information; the second, the results of diplomatic transactions and personal ex perience during a four years' administration. A mass of Chinese official papers, captured or otherwise collected during the war, seemed, worthy of a better fate than to become the prey of worms, always peculiarly active in a hot climate. Dr. Gutzlaff, by my desire, fur nished a regular series of translations and ah stracts during the years 1844 and 1845.
