Fuzhou was the provincial capital, several hundred miles up the coast from Yakou Village. More tightly governed than Xiamen, Quanzhou, and the littoral of coastal southern Fujian, Fuzhou was the seat of the Fujian Governor, the Fujian-Zhejiang Provincial Governor, the Commander-in-Chief of the Fujian military, as well as the provincial Judicial Commissioner. When in 1832 British traders attempted to visit Fuzhou for the purposes of trading in opium, they quickly determined that they would have better luck in southern Fujian, away from the intervention of the provincial administration.
