The Private of the Buffs
Sir Francis Hastings Doyle (18101888)
Or, the British Soldier in China
[Some Seiks, and a private of the Buffs,1 having remained behind with the grog carts, fell into the hands of the Chinese. On the next day they were brought before the authorities and ordered to perform Kotou. The Seiks obeyed, but Moyse, the English soldier, declared he would not prostrate himself before any Chinaman alive, and was immediately knocked upon the head, and his body thrown upon a dunghill.China Correspondent of the London Times.]
