Of the two Japanese, one is a woman who is the warden of the Girls' University, and the other is a teacher in it, a young woman of a wealthy and aristocratic family who has become too modern, I judge, for her family.

I shall have to spend the rest of my life trying to make up for some of the kindnesses and courtesies which so abound here.
