About the author: “The writer was graduated from a well-known college, after he had attended an English school, and later took special studies at a German university” (p. v).
About the author: “. . . the writer of the letters, while a ‘heathen Chinee,’ was an educated gentleman in the American sense of the term” (p. viii).
Though Gratton is not credited with being an editor, the book’s preface characterizes him as performing that role.
