Seite 174 - Pekin, and there deliver it ; and that your great officers will, by your order, make a treaty with him to regulate affairs of trade, so that nothing may happen to disturb the peace between China and America.

One arm clasped her neck, over which a silk scarf was thrown, to conceal the gash in her throat which had destroyed her life. Near her lay the corpse of a woman somewhat more advanced in years, stretched on a silk coverlet, her features distorted, and her eyes open and fixed, as if she had 'died by poison or strangulation. There was no wound...
Seite 146 - It is done by women of a certain age, who have experience in the treatment of infantile diseases. Furnished with innocent pills, and a bottle of holy water, whose virtues they extol, they introduce themselves into the houses where there are sick infants, and discover whether they are in danger of death, in this case they inform the parents, and tell them that before administering other remedies, they must wash their foreheads with the purifying waters of their bottle. The parents, not suspecting...
