of complete lithograph
In August of 1853, Commodore Perry departed Lew Chew for China. The first stop was in Macao where he took a house for an extended stay. This lithograph is a view of a Jesuit convent in Macao. A parade of Westerners follow a Cross held by a priest up the steps to sacred ruins of St. Pauls Church. It had been the largest Christian Church in Asia. However fires were a problem and in 1835 it had all burned but the facade and that is what the men are marching toward. Chinese watch the procession.
This is one of the few lithographs from Volume I of the Narrative that does not have the box frame line.
