The letter from the Commissioner Lin Zexu to Queen Victoria was written in 1839 to make the Queen aware of the state of trade affairs in China in connection with British business men’s continuous import and sale of Opium to Chinese citizens. The highlight of the letter was to make public the growing restlessness of the Chinese Emperor towards use of Opium, considered no difference to poison by its citizens. The letter also tried to warn the Queen and her ministers to stop sending opium to China, and also made them aware that they deserved much better product imports compared to their own exports to Britain which were mostly products of daily use, without which it would be hard to survive. The letter also asked that if opium is prohibited in Britain, why it is allowed to be sent to China and cause destruction of the Chinese natives. Lin Zexu also requests in a more upfront way that British people found selling opium in China would be subject to equal punishments according to the Law prevalent in China, as also would it be applicable to its own citizens to display a fair justice system.
