Letter from C.Y. Sun, Tientsin, to Alfred E. Stearns, July 16, 1922


My dear Dr. Stearns;-

You will be interested to know that Arthur has been awarded a Tsing Hua Scholarship (these scholarships are given to promising studnets [sic] from the fund resulting from the waiving of a part of the Indemnity payment by your Government in connection with the so called Box Outbreak of 1900).

I understand that a Tsing Hua Scholarship is entitle to G. $ 80- per month payable quarterly and the tuition of the institution of the holder that is to say that Arthur would be given G. $ 240- each quarter and the tuition of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I presume what is due to Arthur would be paid you and when received I shall be very glad to know about it with such pariculars [sic] as you may deem of interest to me.

Should there be any unduly delay in your receipt of these periodical payments please communicate with the Commissioner of the Tsing Hua Students C/O the Chinese Legation , Washington.

These receipts may be entered in the boy's account as though receipts from China mentioning, of course, their sourse [sic] and the quarter for which they are paid. They should not be treated separately to avoid extra clerical work.

The polical [sic] situation is still in a confused state. As you have seen in the papers we have recently had quite an anxious time through the quarreling of two military heads one functioning in North China and the other in Manchuria. As soon as this ended, a fracas occurred in Canton which is not yet over. With feudalism prevailing all over the land as a result of the usurpation of the military magnates outbreak here & there, now and then are only to be expected. We are all displeased at the present state of affairs but powerless so patience must be our lot.

We are well and hope you all are enjoy good health as usual.

Yours every cordially


C.Y. Sun
