In 1877, he left China and became the first Professor of Chinese language and literature in the United States at Yale University, a position that provided him time for his own research, writing, and translation. Williams's 1876 diary details his a lecture tour of the United States from Washington to San Francisco, his final voyage to China, and his preparations for leaving China, including many final visits to colleagues and congregants alike. The other diaries offer keen insight into life in late nineteenth-century New Haven.
