Excerpt from China and the Chinese, Vol. 1: Their Religion, Character, Customs, and Manufactures; The Evils Arising From the Opium Trade

Kong, in 1840, up to this time, the end of 1848, will fully bear out the assertion; and, in despite of commodious barracks, and hospitals, our poor fellows fall victims to the pestilential climate of hang-kong, in a fearful manner. The winter is exceedingly cold and piercing, and a north-east wind blows, whilst a burning sun scorches the head, and the transition, from the burning heat of summer, to the cutting blast of winter, injures the most robust. The ia tense heat of an almost vertical sun, whose rays are re¿ected by an arid rock, must necessarily prove injurious to health; but when this is combined with nights of piercing cold, when the thermometer falls below freezing point, and water freezes in the ewer, placed in a bed-chamber, the effect upon a European constitution must be disastrous. In fact, the winter in China is felt much more severely than in Russia, where the internal arrangements of the dwellings are such as to exclude all cold; in Russia, warm clothing will sufice to protect those who take exer cise in the Open air, which it will not do in China, for neither furs nor cloth will exclude the cutting north-east wind, which chills, and seems to penetrate8 china and the chinese.
