§
They have agreed together at last what they will do. She is to put on Chinese dress, and together they will approach the honoured Old Ones. My brother has taught her the proper way to bow in their presence. I am to go before to prepare the way and to take the gifts.

My husband endeavours to encourage me with laughter and bold words, but when he leaves me again I am afraid. I am openly taking part against my mother, I who in all my life before have never disputed her will.
Where does the courage come from in me to do this thing? I am a timid creature always, and left to myself I would see nothing but evil in it.

She, the foreigner, is the only calm one among us.
