Item #25525 Letter to family during a trip in Shanghai. China.

Letter to family during a trip in Shanghai.

May 12, 1933. Adeline writes a newsy letter to "Dear Sister Anna and My Dorothea" from Shanghai commenting on the number of Catholics in China ("there are two large convents and several churches..."), with the bulk of the letter describing Jessfield Park (now Zhongshan Park), the "Sukiyaki feeds', eating in the Japanese style, and how the food is prepared. "I don't know how those B.C. eggs taste... they looked dark and the white looked mottled, ... I could not bring myself to taste them." She is clearly enjoying herself, and asks for more letters from home, "You see, I'm so full of what I see I can't write fast enough to tell all I want to."
