By March, 1850, the Warren has stopped in Hong Kong, where we find this letter from Captain Evans. He writes on March 24th, 1850 and indicates that he arrived in Hong Kong on the 16th. An early notice from January says that he is near Hong Kong and ‘cruising,” which I take to mean that he is waiting for room to open at the port. In his letter, he writes of the advantages of docking at Hong Kong over Honolulu.
