East India Company: Select Committee of Supercargoes, Chinese Secretary's Office: Chinese-language Correspondence and Papers. 1814: CHIA CH'ING XIX. Order from viceroy to Canton prefect, sub-prefect for Macao and Hsiang-shan assistant magistrate. Staunton's obstinacy in raising case of Ayew, which does not implicate foreigners and is stopping trade, must be an unauthorised attempt to cause trouble and discredit Elphinstone. It is to be ascertained whether a stoppage of trade is really desired. (Dated: 9m [28d]).
