In the Claws of the Dragon free pdf Excerpt from In the Claws of the Dragon "Really, these Westerners are not reasonable beings!" said the Duke of Krong, Ambassador of China in France, to his First Secretary, Mingni, Viscount of Lin. The Ambassador was fat, as became a Chinese dignitary of his rank, his Wealth, and his age. His long eyes were always half shut, as if to sharpen his vision. A few stiff hairs, scattered over the lower parts of his round face, did duty as a beard. He was receiving the guests for the inauguration of his newly built Chinese palace in the Rue de Babylon- and he examined them critically. "Look at the costumes of the barbarians!" he continued. "Can you imagine anything more uncomfortable, hideous, and ridiculous? or, I must add, more shockingly immodest? The men display their shirts: think of that! What should you say if we displayed our shirts? And that absurd black waistcoat with a tail, which they call an evening coat! The men look exactly like those white-breasted black fowl of the Polar seas, the penguins." "It certainly could not be much worse," assented Ming-ni. "But their every-day costumes are not so bad."
