Those who minister to the Chinese are securing some converts, but many who are otherwise inclined to the Christian faith are unwilling thus to exile themselves from their own land. After due deliberation, the Dominicans conclude to open a mission in China, and in that case to relax the rule compelling converts to cut off their hair and foresake their native land. This purpose they are enabled to accomplish, after encountering many difficulties, through the aid of some Chinese Christians in Manila; ...

At your accession to the throne the whole system of government was altered, not from wisdom or deliberation, but because it had been adopted by your predecessor.

He then grasped them together with both hands, and finding the other sufficiently strong to support him, deliberately swung himself ...
