Yokohama, the chief place of foreign trade in Japan, is situated on the Bay of Yedo, in the island of Niphon, having Kanagawa as its port. Established under the Elgin Treaty of 1858, it is a well-built and prosperous town, and has grown to large size, but the Japanese Government looks on it with disfavour. The exports considerably exceed the imports, and consist principally of tea, silk, cotton, flax, tobacco, and native produce.

“If we would hold the true course in love, our first step must be to turn our eyes not to man, the sight of whom might oftener produce hatred than love, but to God, who requires that the love which we bear to him be diffused among all mankind, so that our fundamental principle must ever be, Let a man be what he may, he is still to be loved because God is loved.”
–Calvin, Institutes
