A biography of a trader in Singapore/Borneo in the mid-19th century, probably written by either himself or his relative relative. The trader in question, John Dillon Northwood, plied the South China sea. This book contains many descriptions of Singapore and Borneo, with some accounts of Papua, the Philippines, Annam, Brunei, etc. An entertaining read which gives insight into commerce and trade in the region at that time.
