    Excerpt from Crisis in the Opium Traffic: Being an Account of the Proceedings of the Chinese Government to Suppress That Trade, With the Notices, Edicts &C., Relating Thereto

    I have heard that you foreigners are used to attach great impor tance to the word good-faith.' If then you will really do as I, the high commissioner, have commanded, - will deliver up every par tiole of the opium that is already here, and will stay altogether its future introduction, as this will prove also that you are capable of feeling contrition for your offenses, and of entertaining a salutary dread of punishment, the past may yet be left unnoticed. I, the high commissioner, will in that case, in conjunction with the go vernor and lieut.-governor, address the throne, imploring the great emperor to vouchsafe extraordinary favor, and. Not alone to remit the punishment of your past errors, but also - as we will further request to devise some mode of bestowing on you his imperial rewards, as an encouragement of the spirit of contrition and wholesome dread thus manifested by you. After this, you will continue to enjoy the advan tages of commercial intercourse; and, as you will not lose the cha rueter of being 'good foreigners,' and will be enabled to acquire profits and get wealth by an honest trade, will you not indeed stand in a most honorable position?
