A Bride of Japan

by Carlton Dawe

This story with slight plot illustrates a frequent episode in those parts of the world where the hem of Christendom touches great pagan civilizations. The book is very true to life in the treaty ports of Japan, and has strength and power. It is the old story of an honorable man, Christian by inheritance and training, whose conscience revolts at the method of life usually followed by unmarried white men and widowers in these ports. To have a Japanese housekeeper or playmate, pretty and dainty as she often is, is not particularly frowned upon by "society." The white man thus living is accepted at the club, in business, on the street, and at social gatherings. If, however, in conscience and honor he marries the Japanese girl, he is socially cast out. Our author intimates that narrow-mindedness and prejudice may be necessary as conservers of civilization.
