Having lately come to hear the news that a memorial， presented in the capital， that the former officers （who had been cashiered） should be reinstated， had received the imperial consent， he had promptly done all he could， in every nook and corner， to obtain influence， and to find the means （of righting his position，） when he， unexpectedly， came across Yue-ts'un， to whom he therefore lost no time in offering his congratulations. The two friends exchanged the conventional salutations， and Chang Ju-kuei forthwith communicated the tidings to Yue-ts'un.
Yue-ts'un was delighted， but after he had made a few remarks， in a GREat hurry， each took his leave and sped on his own way homewards.
Leng Tzu-hsing， upon hearing this conversation， hastened at once to propose a plan， advising Yue-ts'un to request Lin Ju-hai， in his turn， to appeal in the capital to Mr. Chia Cheng for support.
Yue-ts'un accepted the suggestion， and parted from his companion. rabbit vibraters
On his return to his quarters， he made all haste to lay his hand on the Metropolitan Gazette， and having ascertained that the news was authentic， he had on the next day a personal consultation with Ju-hai.
"Providence and good fortune are both alike propitious！" exclaimed Ju-hai. "After the death of my wife， my mother-in-law， whose residence is in the capital， was so very solicitous on my daughter's account， for having no one to depend upon， that she despatched， at an early period， boats with men and women servants to come and fetch her. But my child was at the time not quite over her illness， and that is why she has not yet started. I was， this very moment， cogitating to send my daughter to the capital. And in view of the obligation， under which I am to you for the instruction you have heretofore conferred upon her， remaining as yet unrequited， there is no reason why， when such an opportunity as this presents itself， I should not do my utmost to find means to make proper acknowledgment. I have already， in anticipation， given the matter my attention， and written a letter of recommendation to my brother-in-law， urging him to put everything right for you， in order that I may， to a certain extent， be able to give effect to my modest wishes. As for any outlay that may prove necessary， I have given proper explanation， in the letter to my brother-in-law， so that you， my brother， need not trouble yourself by giving way to much anxiety."
As Yue-ts'un bowed and expressed his appreciation in most profuse language，——
"Pray，" he asked， "where does your honoured brother-in-law reside？ and what is his official capacity？ But I fear I'm too coarse in my manner， and could not presume to obtrude myself in his presence."
