February 22nd #chinadiary

Carl a bit grumpy about his own writing, vowing to keep it short...

He thus reports on his time spent writing and then his plan to "capture and hold up several of the people of the party and rob them of their treasure". He comes across as very self-confident, self-assured in his encounters with people.

Some pretty dodgy comments about his meeting with "Prof. King, the negro. He surely is a white man under that coal black skin." Carl surely is from 1920s Amerika...

He also engages with Prof. Latourette ("Ken"), something of a China expert and with Miss George and Mrs Mott - and relates the Washington birthday dinner, clearly showing his excitement at being part of such a diverse group of people.
