Eventually this was agreed to; but the priest said he must, in addition, have one hundred " strings " from each village, to pay for the " masses for the dead " that would have to be said. After several months of negotiation, it was settled that the monetary indemnity should be only Tls. 2,2 5 0,000 J that the demand for the two market towns should be given up; and that two months after the signing of the agreement the college (Ling Teh T'ang) should be handed back to the Chinese authorities. The Rev. Arthur Sowerby, writing in February 1902 from T'ai Yuan Fu to the North China Herald, said--" The affairs of the Roman Catholic Missions in T'ai Yuan Fu are not yet finally settled. Lately Monsignor Hofmann, Bishop of Lu An Fu, has been here to act as intermediary. The priests belonging to the Italian Mission are young men, with but a few years' experience, and have not proved capable of managing such delicate negotiations. The chief difficulty arises from the forcible possession and retention of the large college known as the Ling Teh T'ang. H. E. Shen Taot'ai recently obtained an expression of opinion from a large number of literary graduates on the missionary question.

4.0 out of 5 stars How long O lord How long? 4 May 2011
This book came from my dads house where he grew up, Loorna Doone in Hay on Wye. It is a very old copy and has sat on his book shelves for as long as I can remember. He past away recently and I decided to read a lot of his old books. This one is stunning. How I missed it for all these years, the story of the sacrifices these missionaries their children and babies made inspires me. And of course the fruit is a now increasingly powerful Chinese church. Historically it happened during the boxer rebellion and often with the encouragement of local officials. I hope we don't forget there sacrifices
