孟子When Mencius was residing in Zou,
the younger brother of the chief of Ren, who was guardian of Ren at the time,
paid his respects to him by a present of silks,
which Mencius received, not going to acknowledge it.
When he was sojourning in Ping Lu,
Chu, who was prime minister of the State,
sent him a similar present,
which he received in the same way.
Subsequently, going from Zou to Ren,
he visited the guardian;
but when he went from Ping Lu to the capital of Qi,
he did not visit the minister Chu.
屋庐子The disciple Wu Lu was glad, and said,
。” 'I have got an opportunity to obtain some instruction.'
He asked accordingly,
'Master, when you went to Ren, you visited the chief's brother;
and when you went to Qi, you did not visit Chu.
?” Was it not because he is only the minister?'
