Tai-yue， after listening to what her father had to say， parted from him in a flood of tears and followed her nurse and several old matrons from the Jung mansion on board her boat， and set out on her journey.
Yue-ts'un had a boat to himself， and with two youths to wait on him， he prosecuted his voyage in the wake of Tai-yue.
By a certain day， they reached Ching Tu； and Yue-ts'un， after first adjusting his hat and clothes， came， attended by a youth， to the door of the Jung mansion， and sent in a card， which showed his lineage.
Chia Cheng had， by this time， perused his brother-in-law's letter， and he speedily asked him to walk in. When they met， he found in Yue-ts'un an imposing manner and polite address. vibes
This Chia Cheng had， in fact， a GREat penchant above all things for men of education， men courteous to the talented， respectful to the learned， ready to lend a helping hand to the needy and to succour the distressed， and was， to a great extent， like his grandfather. As it was besides a wish intimated by his brother-in-law， he therefore treated Yue-ts'un with a consideration still more unusual， and readily strained all his resources to assist him.
