以下一段講及貪污的情況，更是可悲。歲月已經溜走百多年，情況不但未要改善，似乎還變本加厲。"among the government officials (指香港的官員) corruption was the exception and purity the rule. It was quite the contrary in China, where corruption among officials was the rule. I thought the Provisional Government would be better and went to Canton. I found that the higher the government the more corrupt it was. Finally I went to Peking, but I found things there one hundred times more corrupt and rotten than areas in Canton, and I was forced to the opinion that, after all, village government was the purest government in China.
