PART I - CHAPTER VII

with a servant to a shop and bought a pair of shoes the length I wished. They were two inches longer than my feet, but I stuffed the toes hard with cotton. When I put on the shoes no one could tell I had had bound feet.
I was anxious to have Mrs. Liu see them, and I asked my husband when I might return her call.
" I will go with you to-morrow," he said.
I was surprised that he would be willing to go on the street with me. It is certainly not good custom, and it embarrassed me not a little, but I have grown more used now to his doing strange things.
We went the next day therefore, and my husband treated me most kindly in her presence. True, he confused me greatly once or twice, as, for instance, when he made me precede him into the room where Mrs. Liu was. I did not know his meaning at the time. After we came home, he explained that it was the Western manner.
" Why?" I asked. "Is it because, as I have heard, that men are inferior to women over there?"
" No," he answered, "that is not true."
Then he explained it to me. It is grounded, he said, in an old system of courtesy which began in ancient times. This was very astonishing to me.
