Chinese historical climate-related documentary information is presented to explain why the dryness / wetness index for the year 1780 for the Guangdong area was stated as wet. That fact presented a contradiction with the observations of an anonymous observer of the Swedish East India Company at Macau, China, in the year 1780. It is further shown how both climate information sources can be complementary.
