"Macau sketched Dec 1898": é esta a legenda escrita a lápis no verso de uma aguarela da autoria de F. V. Jeffries, um militar que prestou serviço em Hong Kong (Royal Engineers) entre 1898 e 1900, acompanhado pelo mulher que era botânica. No quadro surge o que parece ser a baía da Praia Grande vista a partir do hospital S. Januário.
