Si vous montrez les chinois comme les occidentaux se les representent encore trop souvent; si vous les montrez avec une natte qui etait, sous la dynastie mandchoue, un signe d'esclavage; si vous les montrez fourbes et cruels; si vous parlez des "suplices chinois", alors, vous allez blesser mes etudiants. De grace, soyez prudent: informez-vous..."
