Additional Details:
A Chinese Express. The chinese use of a very slow and conservative turn of mind. Mails and messages are still carried across the remote country districts in wagons drawn by ponies, and during winter when the untended roads are nearly impossible, the mails are frequently considerably delayed, The ponies are small, stubborn and under fed and curses and the whip are the only form of encouragement the drivers ever seem to use.
