While acting in that capacity, he was, with others, taken prisoner by the Chinese on the 18th September 1860, and died in captivity about a week later, after much suffering. This volume contains his diary from the 26th April to the 16th September 1860, his letters as special correspondent which appeared in The Times, and private letters relating to some of the incidents of the expedition, namely: Extracts from Mr. H.
