But may I mnko ono or two minor
corrections? I wns made to say In
your headlines In tho report of my

for the regeneration ot Japan." That
'is Just contrary to my belief, for I
limvo every hopo for tho regeneration
of Japan, but It must como through
her own people, ns I bellcvo It will,
for they arc being permeated, as I
.E!IJ' by tho leaven of Christianity.
Again, jour reporter misunder
