Who are the Scots?

Thomas Blake Glover (1838 - 1911) Born in Aberdeenshire, Glover went to Shanghai in China and then to Nagasaki as agent of the Jardine Matheson trading company. He was awarded the highest 'Order of the Rising Sun' for his contribution to modernising Japan, through industrialisation and smuggling Japanese students abroad to gain a better education. He may have provided the model for Puccini's 1904 Opera 'Madame Butterfly'.
