Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: VH02-007. Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution reference: L04357-003c. The Revd. Walter Henry Medhurst D.D. (1796-1857) was a missionary and one of the earliest to translate the Bible into Chinese. Walter Medhurst died on 24th January 1857, in London. He had left China on 10th September 1856, in failing health. The date (1857) written in the album, is written in a way that suggests uncertainty about the year - the 7 seems to have started out being written as a 6. Photograph by Robert Sillar. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Henry_Medhurst.
