"The Amherst embassy in 1816 was the third in a series of unsuccessful British attempts to establish trade relations with the Chinese government... The embassy, which was sent out by George III 'to protest at the ill-treatment of British subjects' was a failure, since Lord Amherst refused to kow-tow to the emperor. Ellis, who published this authorised narrative of the journey and transactions of the embassy, had accompanied Earl Amherst in the capacity of third commissioner" (Löwendahl).
