Excerpt from China and the Powers: A Narrative of the Outbreak of 1900

I have tried throughout to present the Chinese view of the different matters in dispute equally with that of the Powers, it being impossible not to feel that the responsibility for the terrible tragedy of last year does not by any means rest wholly upon China.

For my illustrations I am chiefly indebted to Mr. Hamilton Berners and Mr. L. Foster, two young Englishmen who were travelling at the time in the East, and who managed to get up to Peking within a few days of the relief of the Legations.

The two Chinese pictures were taken from a Chinaman who was apprehended and punished for distributing inflammatory placards in Shanghai. They were kindly given to me by Mr. Hewett, a member of the Shanghai Municipal Council.
