Excerpt from Calendar of the Gods in China, 1916

This Calendar of the Chinese gods was prepared during an enforced absence in Japan in the summer of 1900. But owing to the pressure of other duties it was not published, as I wished to improve it. However, the pressure of other business continued. Therefore, though imperfect, its publication may save others from going needlessly over the same ground, and may be of some aid to a right attitude towards the millions who now worship many gods, because they have not an opportunity of knowing anything better. So I send it forth.
