Anthrop logically ifs an extremely difficult thing to identify either the japanese or the chinese. The japs Are predominantly Brown in racial classification being polynesians whose ancestries Are As obscure in the Depths of time As Are the origins of Many now for gotten civilizations of which we have discovered puzzling Trace. The chinese Are the yellow race and they too Are drawn from Many origins.

Come and compare columns and idol dwellings Goth or greek with natures realms of worship Earth and air nor fix on fond abodes to circumscribe thy prayer a lord by ran Byron was born in London in 1788. He died in Greece where he went to help in the fight for libration in 1824. In those 36 years he lived a tempestuous life and wrote poetry winning him a Foremost place in English literature. Of his vigorous personality much has been written both favourable and Adverse. In defense of him it has been said that his cynical speeches with regard to friends and Friendship often quoted to his disadvantage Are not to be taken too literally. Byron talked in accordance with the whim of the moment. His acts do not correspond to his words. He rejected both protestant and Catholic orthodoxy but like the athenians he was exceedingly religious. Whatever his faults May have been Byron had certain Noble qualities which did not fail him at his worst. He was courageous he was often kind and he loved truth rather than lies.
