The Case Against Shi Hou: A Qing Document

This path follows the case against a man named Shi Hou laid out in a memorial from the Fujian-Zhejiang Governor General Zhong Xiang and the Provincial Governor Wei Yuanlang, dated 15 December, 1838. As we shall see, Shi Hou was charged with being the first person in southern Fujian to illegally escort British opium ships north into Fujian from the Canton Delta.
