A sketch by compass of the coast of the promontory of Shan-tung, with the track of the ships, and the soundings, from the place of first making the land to the strait of Mi-a-tau.

From the great extension of this promontory, or bold point of land into the Yellow sea towards the kingdom of Corea, beyond the rest of the Chinese coast, it was conceived diere might be a considerable degree of danger and difficulty in sailing round it into the gulf of Pekin. The squadron, however, standing well in towards the coast, doubled the promontory in sight of the land the greatest part of the way, which furnished an excellent opportunity of marking down the different points, and the depth of water. It was of importance to have determined that there was no harbour fit for large ships in the strait, or among the islands of Mi-a-tau, as had been supposed from the information of Chinese pilots, and to have discovered an excellent bay on the northern coast of the promontory of Shan-tung, where none had been expected. This bay, and the whole coast, is laid down with as great accuracy as circumstances would allow.
