Description
Photograph of "a priest's house in Japan." This two-story connected house has terra cotta roofing, wooden shutters and a wooden porch railing. Sitting in a window on the second floor is the European priest who lives in the house. A group of ten Japanese people have gathered on the porch. In the street in front of the house, three Japanese children stand around a baby carriage. "This is my poor old and wooden house that sinks by degrees. I intend also sending you the constructions of Methodists when the temple they are building now will be finish. You will may see the difference."
