not a' partisan.

May the superior man be a partizan also?

The

prince married a daughter of the house of Wfi, of the same surname with himself, and called her,—“ The elder Tsze of Wfi.” If the prince knew ropriety, who does not know it ".1

3. a-ma Ch‘i reported these

remarks, and the Master said, ‘ I

am fortunate! If I have any errors, people are sure to know them.’ CHAP. XXXI. When the Master was in company with a person

who was singing, if he sang well,

he would make him repeat the

son , while he accompanied it with his own voice.

-Chi‘i Hsi says, ‘Prayer is the expression of repentance and promise of amendment, to supplicate the help of the spirits. If there be not those things, then there is no need for praying. In the case of the sage, he had committed no errors. and admitted of no amendment. In all his conduct he had been in harmony with the spiritual intelligences, and therefore he said,—my praying has been for along h'me.’ We must demur to some of these expressions ; but the declining to be prayed for, and the concluding remark, seem to indicate the satisfaction of Confucius with himself. We wish that our information about him were not so stinted and fragmentary.
