Corea or Cho-sen eBook

Arnold Henry Savage Landor
This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 237 pages of information about Corea or Cho-sen.

Poor Corea!  A sad day has come for you!  You, who were so attractive, because so quaint and so retiring, will nevermore see that calm which has ever been the yearning of your patriot sons!  Many evils are now before you, but, of all the great calamities that might befall you, I can conceive of none greater than an attempt to convert you into a civilised nation!

FOOTNOTES: 

    [4] After a cessation of many years a tribute was again exacted
        from Corea in 1890, in consequence of overtures being made to
        Corea by Japan, which displeased China.
