 Item
Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Parkes 44/15

Scope and Contents

'Pa ling-shih chih Li fu': a copy of a letter from Consul Harry Parkes to Governor Li Hung-chang, 24 September, pointing out problems that have arisen in Gordon's training programme for Chinese officers at Feng-huang-shan (Phoenix Hill - 25 miles from Shanghai). The letter does not give the year. However, the training programme was started by Gordon in May 1864 and abandoned by him later in the same year when he returned to England. The document includes an English note at the top of the covering page reading 'Copy of Consul's note to Fu-t'ai' (Fu-t'ai is an alternative address of the provincial governor).
