Decided to break up, I do not want to let go and hope myself in an eighty, to be fixed. That is to say that I do not know, today, when or for how long I will be staying again or going to shanghai. I remember you didn't intend to leave him this summer, and so hope, firmly, to see you again, before winning the goal on. This is the only interest I have in this metropolis of the godown, of which only you, Madame maybon and you, and the few people you introduced me to, have made it possible for me to live.

Accept, I beg you, Mrs Maybon, my most respectful tributes and believe in my sincere sympathy.Missioned to recruit workers to replace the fighting workers on the front, Segalen arrived in China in February 1917.
