Description

Excerpt from The Gospel in All Lands, 1898 Hang-kong! Saturday, February 6, 1848, at nine o'clock A. M., we sighted the coast of China, in the vicinity of bong-kong, the port of our destination. It was the first day of the Chinese New Year, and our captain was unable to procure a pilot until two o'clock P. When a Chinese pilot came on board and took charge of the ship. Mean while the captain, by aid of his charts, had verified his position and placed his good ship, one hundred and fifteen days from New York, at the mouth of the entrance to the harbor of bong-kong. The wind being light and ahead it was nine o'clock r. M. When, with grateful hearts, we dropped anchor in the harbor and looked shoreward on the flashing lights of Victoria, the name given to the English settlement on the island. This name, however, as we soon ascertained, is but little used, every per son applying hong-kong, the name of the island, to the settlement.
