This obligation was for some time strenuously resisted by the natives of Amoy, Swatow, and elsewhere in that neighbourhood.
We found the Swatow in port and scheduled to sail the next morning.
Thence we set out to traverse a part of the coast of China, and at this time our tent was pitched not far from Swatow.
The approach to the port of Swatow can be improved easily by a little training and dredging, thus making it a fine local port.
Our departure from Swatow was almost as spectacular as our entry into Chao-yang.
In six days we saw her smoke on the horizon, and soon the Swatow, flying the German flag, cast anchor off the town.
Swatow is the third port in the amount thus obtained, itself furnishing two to three millions of the aggregate result.
An English missionary in Swatow, China, heard sounds of bitter weeping by the wayside one night.
Chao-yang is a larger city than Swatow; the Chinese count it as containing a population of three hundred thousand.
Swatow is situated at the mouth of the Hankiang at the extreme east of Kwangtung.
