Wutaishan Abbot, Watercolour, Emily Kemp Archive

“The Abbot sat down and began discussing our respective religions, which he said were exactly the same. While agreeing as to their fundamental principle being the same, I felt unable to discuss their differences, being somewhat inattentive, I fear, owing to my endeavor to get on with the sketch as rapidly as possible.”
