What we Ought to do in China
'What we Ought to do in China', 1860. A Chinese dragon being threatened by a St George like representative of the British army. The Chinese were showing signs of dissent despite the Convention of Tientsin. In 1858, China had been brought to sign the Treaty of Tientsin which allowed France and Britain a number of commercial concessions. It also renewed the terms of the Treaty of Nanking between Britain and China, originally signed in 1842 to end the Opium War. When China reneged, war was inevitable. Eventually, when Peking was threatened with bombardment, it surrendered to the Allies and the Convention of Tientsin, to confirm the details previously agreed, was signed in October 1860. It was also decided a sum of 3,000 taels was to be paid to all those who had suffered from Chinese barbarities. From Punch, or the London Charivari, December 12, 1860.
