The chapter introduces the situation of the British consulate and other members of the consular corps in Macao. Next door to the Japanese consulate, Reeves had some interesting encounters with the Japanese consul, who assisted in humanitarian efforts, but was later assassinated. The chapter also includes information about the British community in Macao and some of the other Allied nationals as well as the attitude of the Portuguese to the war. People were escaping to Free China and although Reeves was not in touch with the organizers of the escape routes, he assisted within his means.
