The Lion and Dragon: Britain's first embassy to China

Narrative 2: A Voyage to China

Although long and arduous, the journey to China was none the less an exciting one. There were many ports of call where the Embassy was greeted with official cordiality and hospitality. They first dropped anchor at Funchal in Madeira and Macartney's reception there is described by Aeneas Anderson, his valet.
