Loch, governor of Victoria; Wong Yung Ho and C Tsing of the Chinese Imperial Commissioners; Earl Granville, Secretary of State for the Colonies; Lew Ta Jen, Chinese Minister at the Court of London, and others. Chinese immigration, as on the west coast of the United States at this time-, was a highly contentious and emotive issue.

Quite big and heavy. Airmail (5-7 days) to Australia/USA etc is £10.50, insured to £46. Airmail to Europe £7.00 with insurance to £46. In UK first class £3.20, with insurance to £46. I am happy to accept payment in US$ or GBP sterling ....[PLEASE READ THIS NEXT BIT].... the only reservation being that buyers using personal cheques, bank cheques, or money orders in US$, NEED to add on $10 in bank conversion fees. Paypal in GBP or US$ is fine. No reserve and very low minimum bid for a genuine auction.
