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

Narrative 20: A Voyage to China

Some of the less important members of the Embassy nevertheless saw their published recollections achieve great success. Huttner's journal was first published in German and then published in a French translation and the account of Lord Macartney's valet, Aeneas Anderson, ran to two editions in both London and Dublin, perhaps because he was less inclined to expatiate on Chinese history and economics but described daily life so vividly.
