The Chinese bureaucracy has been far-reaching for millenia. The “Dunhuang Bureau of Etiquette” in the 800s insisted that local officials use the above template to apologize to their hosts after a night of inappropriate drunken behavior. The official would copy the template, insert the hosts’ names, sign it, and deliver it “with head bowed.” The letter was discovered, alongside thousands of other documents, in a sealed cave library in western China.
"Yesterday, having drunk too much, I was intoxicated as to pass all bounds; but none of the rude and coarse language I used was uttered in a conscious state. The next morning, after hearing others speak on the subject, I realised what had happened, whereupon I was overwhelmed with confusion and ready to sink into the earth with shame."

Wow, holy shit, that is one lengthy job to take on as a fan translation
Recoloured yesterday’s picture using colours picked from an actual swatch of scanned paint. I totally recommend this approach! Works wonders for colour harmony. But it’s also really interesting in that the colours you pick up with the eyedropper do not seem to be the same as the colours you’re looking at on the scanned sample. And yet they are, somehow….
fuck my life, it looked better as a lineart
