"Primarily this work is intended for students of Wenli. It is assumed that they already have a rudimentary knowledge of the classical language, and these selections are tendered in the belief that they offer a help towards further progress in Christian Literature.The passages were selected either for their style, or for their ideal of Chinese thought, or for their historical setting. For instance, Hsu Chuh Yun's letter finds a place because of his martyrdom in the Boxer year and because of the view of social life which it reveals." - Preface.
