Strana 1 - To respect the sovereignty, the independence, and the territorial and administrative integrity of China; (2) To provide the fullest and most unembarrassed opportunity to China to develop and maintain for herself an effective and stable government; (3) To use their influence for the purpose of effectually establishing and maintaining the principle of equal opportunity for the commerce and industry of all...
Strana 294 - Long is the night to him who is awake; long is a mile to him who is tired; long is life to the foolish who do not know the true law.
