Summary

But she was of opinion that such books would treat of the country from a western point of view whilst my bcok would prove interesting to the reader from the point of view of an Asiatic intimately acquainted with the manners the customs and the inner life of the people. [...] The Beginning of the Disclosure of the Secret. [...] Takabe had been a born fisher especially skilled in the use of the " shot-net " and to catch fish had baen the joy and pleasure of his life On the occasion of the leave-taking"2 THREE YEALS IN TIBET. [...] I thereupon asked a daughter of the host's to build a fire for me in the yard ; and when it was ready I consigned the nets to flames in the presence of all—there were all the members of the family and some visitors besides to witness the scene. [...] A few moments later I ascertained that the sound and quaking were caused by the collapse and fall of the bath-room from the second floor where it had been situated to the ground below with its bath basin and all the other contents among which the most important and unfortunate was a Japanese lady who as I had been neglectful in accepting the invitation was asked to have her bath first.
