Several species of redwood occur in central California, confined to a limited area. After crossing the Redwood river, the road led over a thirty-mile prairie, without a shrub on it as big as a walking stick.

It was long accepted by all, even by the maiden Priscilla, that young Amaral was to be her husband though nothing had been said on the subject. Later, the small circle of Macao society, of which poverty and pride were the ruling features, became too dull for the young girl and her foster parents took her often to Hong Kong where she met with those of the outer world.
The acquaintance blossomed into friendship and ripened into love. The lover was accepted, and now a courtship of two years was in three weeks to see them married.
There were many disappointed youths and envious of Robert Adams, but all took their misfortune as in the way of the world, except young Amaral, who, in silence, had watched the course of events and now hated the happy suitor with all the fierceness of his Southern blood. That night Robert Adams, unlike the conventional lover, but like a healthy, light-hearted fellow, fell asleep without a sigh, listening to the waves as they broke regularly on the stone embankment before his window.
In the room below, Dom Pedro walked until the early morning, no beating of waves could lull him to sleep, for his head ached and his eyes burned in the fever of jealousy.

On the yellow water here and there were junks with tanned sails and gay banners; islands with graceful pagodas were seen, and the huge white cathedral of the near dependency of Taipa. Then in the foreground at their very feet was Macao, a feast of colour, red roofs, many-hued walls, green trees and brilliant gardens, beautiful as the jewel-set sheath of a Venetian dagger, with its poison and death-dealing wickedness hidden. Dom Amaral with his wife had gone to the new cathedral to services; their well appointed chairs had scarcely left the court and the gates been bolted behind them when Dom Pedro came from his room.
His face had changed greatly since the day before; the loss of sleep and the bitterness of his heart had made him look pale and thin. For the first time in his life he had spoken harshly to his valet, and that meek Celestial wore an expression of grief and surprise, for Pedro Amaral, whatever his faults, did not have the vulgar one of venting his spleen upon his inferiors, so that his lifelong servant was at a loss to account for the sudden change.
Dom Pedro walked to the library and drawing the curtains behind him sat down before the cases filled with brilliant steel.

The opening up of the North American western seaboard to a rapidly expansive United States paved the way for further incursions into the Pacific, culminating in the seizure of the Philippines in resulting from the brief war with Spain.
If, in parallel to this, we also consider the establishment of Hong Kong as a British colony in , which severely dented the historic prestige of Portuguese Macau as the only European entrepot in China, then we could regard the second half of the nineteenth century as a period of unbridled Anglo-American capitalist expansion at the expense of the older Iberian empires in the Western Pacific and South China Sea. This hatred is accentuated by the fact that Priscilla is an orphan of North American origin who has been brought up in Macau.
