I was sub-divisional police officer of the town, and in an aimless, petty kind of way anti-European feeling was very bitter.
No one had the guts to raise a riot, but if a European woman went through the bazaars alone somebody would probably spit betel juice over her dress.

As a police officer I was an obvious target and was baited whenever it seemed safe to do so.

The young Buddhist priests were the worst of all.
There were several thousands of them in the town and none of them seemed to have anything to do except stand on street corners and jeer at Europeans.
