Stan Lynn

by George Manville Fenn

Stan Lynn, just from school in England, gallantly assists his father and uncle, merchant; at Haihai, in defending their warehouse against attack from Chinese pirates. His conduct inspires them with such confidence in him that they send him as assistant manager to their branch collecting house on the Mour River, where experiences even more exciting crowd him thick and fast. The time is presumably during the late Boxer movement, though pirates rather than Boxers figure in the disturbances. Besides the action of the story, which will hold any boy's rapt attention, its insight into Chinese character and custom and its vivid local coloring invest it with timely value in these days when all things Chinese command public interest.
