April 17th #chinadiary

Another busy day, meeting and public speaking to two hundred primary school boys, then 1500 soldier students, then a reception for teachers of the city - Carl makes no comment about his speaking engagements and gives the impression of taking it all in his rather confident stride. The day finishes with "a most splendiferous Chinese feast of considerably over twenty courses at the Home of Col. Chou, one of the most interesting men here in Taiyuanfu."
