Excerpt from China and Japan, and a Voyage Thither: An Account of a Cruise in the Waters of the East Indies, China, and Japan

There have been times in the lives of almost every one, when they have stood with a group of friends, as some bright day closed into evening, and watched with admiration its va ried pictures of colored and golden cloud-scenes. At such times one could not have failed to have remarked that each one saw scenes unnoticed or unrecognized by others. What would appear to one to be the figures of persons, would as clearly be recognized by another to be animals; and while one would be struck with astonishment at a very clearly de fined picture of contending armies, or a noble tower with lofty battlements, to others these same scenes would appear but a confused and unshapen mass.

In like manner, no one beholds the same thing precisely alike, and in some cases there is a direct contradiction in describing the same object, and yet both may be correct so far as they go; as in the case of the two knights contending over the material of which the shield was composed. The fault was that one did not see the whole; and in no case yet has the multiplied descriptions of different countries and people either exhausted the subject, or made us accurately acquainted. There is ever an opportunity for one more to bring something new to our notice, or present the most familiar subject in some new and interesting aspect.
