The author visited some Native Americans, "Notice the strange garments the Indians wear." He (for it most likely a he back then) writes that the white invaders were too strong for the Red Indians and how the Indians hated the Palefaces. He writes that the greatest enemy of the Chinaman is the battle of the dice, and discusses at length the skin of the Mongolians which "is rarely anything like a real yellow"!! He describes Buddhist monks in their "quaint robes and sandals." He says when you arrive in Bombay you'll notice that all the people have "brown skins and black hair and wear strange Eastern clothes." He does point out that "it is slightly inaccurate to call the people of Southern and Western Asia 'brown', most of them are really no browner than many South Europeans..." He says pygmies lining up for a dance look 'curious', and they will go through 'peculiar contortions' He also pointed out that they were not clever enough to grow corn.
The racial slurs and inaccuracies fill the book. It's funny if you can get off your high horse and see it for the era in which it was composed, and the attitude fo the dominating English people of that time. But it is also so very, very sad.
