Sivu 93 - Assuredly it is not foreign intercourse that is ruining China, but this dreadful poison. Oh, the grief and desolation it has wrought to our people ! A hundred years ago the curse came upon us more blasting and deadly in its effects than the Great Flood or the scourge of the Fierce Beasts, for the waters assuaged after nine years, and the ravages of the man-eaters were confined to one place. Opium has spread with frightful rapidity and heart-rending results through the provinces. Millions upon millions...
Sivu 93 - Beasts, for the waters assuaged after nine years, and the ravages of the man-eaters were confined to one place. Opium has spread with frightful rapidity and heart-rending results through the provinces. Millions upon millions have been struck down by the plague. To-day it is running like wildfire. In its swift, deadly course it is spreading devastation everywhere, wrecking the minds and eating away the strength and wealth of its victims.
Sivu 339 - In the last ten days the soldiers and militia have been fighting, and there has been no communication between us, to our great anxiety.

Sivu 50 - Yamen have gathered (respecting the duties imposed on them by their priesthood), these persons found as it were among us an undetermined number of States within the State. How, under these conditions, can we hope that a durable understanding should be established, and to prevent the governors and the governed uniting against them in common hostility? The Prince and the members of the Yamen are impressed with a desire to ward off from henceforth eventualities so menacing.
Sivu 341 - Tientsin road that we should be very apprehensive of misadventure. We now request Your Excellencies to first take your families and the various members of your staffs, and leave your Legations in detachments. We should select trustworthy officers to give close and strict protection, and you should temporarily reside in the...
Sivu 76 - If in the future you wish t6 preach your doctrine in China, you must drive the Japanese back to their own country ; then you will be allowed to preach your Holy Gospel throughout the country without let or hindrance.
Sivu 200 - If you gain five adherents to the faith, your whole family will be absolved from all evils; and if you gain ten adherents to the faith, your whole village will be absolved from all calamities. Those who gain no adherents to the cause shall be decapitated; for until all foreigners have been exterminated, the rain can never visit...
Sivu 93 - In its swift, deadly course it is spreading devastation everywhere, wrecking the minds and eating away the strength and wealth of its victims. The ruin of the mind is the most woeful of its many deleterious effects. The poison enfeebles the will, saps the strength of the body, renders the consumer incapable of performing his regular duties, and unfit for travel from one place to another. It consumes his substance and reduces the miserable wretch to poverty, barrenness, and senility. Unless something...
