Destination: China

In China, you must know, the Emperor is a Chinaman, and all whom he has about are Chinamen too. It happened a good many years ago, but that's just why it's worth while to hear the story, before it is forgotten. The Emperor's palace was the most splendid in the world; it was made entirely of porcelain, very costly, but  so delicate and brittle that one had to take care how one touched it.
