Chapter Summary

This chapter of the book The Business, Life and Letters of Frederick Cornes Aspects of the Evolution of Commerce in Modern Japan, 1861-1910 shows a collection of letters from Frederick Cornes to other firms and individuals as well as to his own colleagues during the years from 1864 to 1889. The correspondence is primarily concerned with business matters especially those regarding the ordering and processing of items from London or Yokohama, together with commercial intelligence concerning their respective markets. They also contain many personal references and provide a limited amount on conditions in Japan and on external affairs but it should be remembered that the letters are written between individuals who are fully aware of the events under discussion.
