Entered according to act of Congress, in the year 1872, by the
UNIVERSITY PUBLISHING COMPANY,
The threefold object of this volume is to give an account, from official sources, of the Embassy recently accredited to the United States by the Tenno of Japan; to print a collection of essays written by the Japanese students now residing in this country and illustrating their style of thought and expression; and to republish a little work on America, compiled under the direction of Jugoi Arinori Mori, the Chargé d'Affaires from Japan. An edition of the last-named production was printed under the title of Life and Resources in America, and intended for exclusive circulation in Japan, where it is to be translated into the language of that country. It having been suggested to Mr. Mori, by many of his friends, that the American public would be glad to read the volume, he considered the question in a friendly spirit, and consented to its republication in the present form.
