East India Company: Select Committee of Supercargoes, Chinese Secretary's Office: Chinese-language Correspondence and Papers. 1814: CHIA CH'ING XIX. Enclosure: Order from Hoppo to hong merchants of 8m 25d. The viceroy and governor have received a report from sub-prefect Fu, sent as a deputy to Macao, that the vessel seized was an English one previously taken as an American prize. They have accordingly decided that the hatches of the merchant vessels of both countries may be opened; that if the quarrelling continues trade will be stopped again; and that HMS Grampus and HMS Owen Glendower, the two recently arrived cruisers, may lie off Cabrita Point, to which they should move, and be provisioned there by compradores, until they convoy the merchantmen home.
