On August 15, BBC. announced the news of the Japanese surrender. Although the citizens of Macao felt triumphant, they obeyed the orders of the government to restrain on public celebrations until the ban was lifted. Macao’s isolation was officially over with the arrival of the first British ship. The newspapers had high praises for what Reeves had done in providing relief to refugees of Allied nations. Macao sent food and money to Hong Kong. The Japanese handed their Consulate as well as their property over and the memoir ends with Reeves leaving Macao.
