The Chinese carte de visite is a curiosity. It consists of a bright scarlet paper, with the owner's name inscribed in large letters-the bigger the more exquisite. For extra grand occasions the card is folded ten times, the name is written on the right hand lower corner, with a humiliating prefix, lfko "your very stupid brother," your unworthy friend who bows his head and pays his respects," &c., &c, the words your stupid" taking the place of yours respectfully." It is etiquette to return these cards to the visitois, it being presumablethat the ex. pense is too great for general distribution.
