From "H. Ec." to Geisha Girls and Russian Refugees: Sarah Field's Experiences in Japanese Schools and Russian War Work
But not all Miss Field's time was spent in language school. There were many walk-s through those narrow, tortuous streets, and visits to those "funny, brown open-fronted shops", where the mysteries and splendor of the Orient was laid before her—brilliant silk kimonas with strange Japanese characters and symbols which told stranger stories in their embroideries; and lacquer, old teak/Wood, and jade in many unusual forms. Then there were missionary meetings and the church, where she met the wonderful people with whom she was soon· to work.
