"The sea-scape resembles lichen twisting

and turning for a thousand li.'

There is no shore to land and it is

difficult to walk

With a gentle breeze I arrived at the city

"To abuse a China man; to rob him; to kick and cuff him; even to kill him, have been things not only done with impunity by mean and wicked men, but even with vain glory.”
- Quote from a Traveler from the east coast
