Sometimes just took Cixi loved by her thing or replaced it with another. With an incredible memory, she knew without exception all the gifts she has ever were presented, the names of all the presents and, of course, made this their findings. But the Dowager Empress serve not only its own memory or observation. "With three eunuchs - An-te-hai, Li Lianying and old Van Chanyuya - it has created perhaps the best of the spy system ever existed in the court", - says Hussey, and he, as it were echoed by other authors, showing that even Empress Cixi was to spy who followed the emperor. This surveillance system is operated and is in the details. As soon as Mrs. Conger, wife of the American envoy, brought his compatriot Carl a bundle, Cixi saw it and secretly wished to know what was in it. One of the maids of honor with the help of numerous tweaks found that the convolution is only one number of the American magazine, but when she was told Cixi, it turned out that the Empress Dowager already knows all of the eunuchs.
