Johnston was very satisfied with the remuneration offered by the court, especially when compared with what he previous was offered by the Colonial Office. Also, Johnston gained respect from the Chinese for that Puyi's admiration to Scot and his teacher set important footing of Johnston. Johnston never stopped to plan for a trip for Puyi and the young emperor was so desperate to see the outside world with his teacher accompanied. However, the court disagreed. Puyi appreciated Johnston's effort on the trip as well as his true care about Puyi's health and well-beings. The relationship between this student and his tutor was very close and good. When it was the time Johnston ended his useful life in Beijing, he had a good income, a wide circle of friends, and was the confidant of the emperor.
