Description
"A sea-going junk, with an eye painted on the bow. An explanation current in "pidgin-English" was as follows: 'No gottee eye, how can see? No can see, how can savvy? No can savvy, how can go? No can go, how can get to place?'"
Captions for this set of lantern slides from the papers of Oliver and Jennie Logan, American Presbyterian missionaries in Hunan, were provided by their daughter Elsa.
