Letter from T.Y. Chen to Dr. Alfred E. Stearns, November 15, 1924


Typed letter from T.Y. Chen to Dr. Alfred E. Stearns thanking Stearns for his suggestion and advice in regards to the shifting of school for Yang, Chen's wards. Acknowledges that the Stearns School should be the first school considered, and asks Stearns several questions about the school, including distance from Andover, cost of the first term, etc.


My dear Dr. Stearns:

Thank you for your letter of November 10th.

I appreciate very much your kind help and sympathetic advice in regard to the shifting of school of Yang. As the time is getting nearer to the end of the term, the shifting should be done as soon as possible. Hence I believe it is unwise for me to spend any more time in choosing among schools that are equally good. Among those you suggested to me the Stearns School should seem to be first considered. The easiness of
handling a case that is familiar to the school and the readiness of shifting by you will make this school more preferred. Will you talk this thing over with your brother and kindly tell me the following: 1. How far is Mont Vernon from Andover? 2. How much money have I to pay to the school for the first term? 3. Can Yang be taken in there as the first-year student? 4. Is there dormitory for student? 5. Do they treat the students just as strictly as your school and take the equal care of the same?

As the matter can be settled. I wish I could come to Andover myself. But at present I am in a very busy condition that I cannot ask for even a short leave. Any way I will try my best and wish to hear from you first,
With best wishes to you and thank you in advance.

Very cordially yours,


T.Y. Chen
