Excerpt from Memoirs of a Captivity in Japan, Vol. 3 of 3: During the Years 1811, 1812, and 1813, With Observations on the Country and the People

The circumstances detailed, and so modestly put forth in the Author's Preface, first suggested the idea Of comparing Captain ~golownin's regol~ lections with the various extensive details handed down to us, from the first period of Euro pean intercourse with Japan, to the present day. The result of this examination exhibits Japan as presenting the spectacle of a nation advancing to a certain point in civilization, and there becoming stationary, at least in science and domestic arts though perhaps retrograding in morals and even in civil liberty - a fact highly deserving the attention Of the politician and the statistical economist, and pointedly demanding every illustration that for mer writers can supply.
