Example text

I am sitting here like an idiot on a seashore waiting. . for a ship! I miscalculated— my ship has passed by; when I found out about it, I rushed home to pack my bags and immediately leave for home by way of Siberia— but it turned out that it would take me a month even to get to Vladivostok because the route I had taken here is now cut off either by Chang or Fang or Wu. Tickets to Dairen are sold out to the end of September. More haste, less speed— how very true! . . . The devil only knows if it’s the night that gets me confused!

An Englishman in cork helmet, dazzling white suit, and white shoes sits in his rickshaw encouraging the rickshaw man with a white hose in the back. The rickshaw man opens up a way through the mass of humanity with hoarse shouts. This is how it is: in Peking, in Wu-ch’ang, as in Hankow, Sikhs— Indians in crimson turbans who are Britain’s colonial police— stand at inter­ sections. They hold bamboo sticks with which they paste the thighs of each and every Chinese coolie or rickshaw man that runs past.

Today, July the 14th, is the anniversary of the taking of the Bas­ tille, a national French holiday. Just now Loks has returned from the French consul’s in the French Concession. In Russia, in all like­ lihood, I would not have remembered this day, but here in China the whole city is celebrating it. That is why this old sinner too spent nearly the whole of last night tramping around the French Concession. First we went to the French park, where everything was illuminated, and they sent rockets into the sky with full Chi­ nese splendor, and where with full European decadence, tables groaned under awnings with viands for French sailors and Russian prostitutes.
