August 27, 1000.
I thought I had lout the letter commenced
August H but found it In my
Journal to-day, so I will finish, even If
disconnected. It was Interrupted by
the cry of "The troops have come." I
Jumped up, dressed hurriedly and ran
out Into Lady McDonald's frorft hall lii
time to greet the British officers. The
court outside was filled with magnificent
Sikhs, all turbancd and Jolly looking
as could be. Oh, what cheering,
huzzas aiid tearg! Old General Gazalee
and the officers, bronzed and sweating,
all had trembling voices as well as tearful
Crept Through "Water Gate.
With them 450 Indian Sikhs entered
the southern city, after sending a few
shells through the gate and then Instead
of shelling their way Into the
North city they crept man after man
through the water gate, or where the
city canal runs through the city wall.
This canal la now dry. The British
were llrst In the North city. The United
States troops lost their way In the
South city and wandered about for two
hours, but the United States flag was
floating from the wall of the Chlen Man
gate, from which point we suffered our
worst attacks. As the cheering In the
compound Increased so did the flre from
the Chinese barricades, for not having
seen the entrance of our troops, -they
thought to silence a most unusual nosle.
One Indian soldier was badly<-wounded
.and a French woman was struck In
the leg by a fragment of a shell. A
shell exploded In Sir Claude McDonald'*
bed room. A bullet came Into our
room, so the Sikhs said, "We hadn't
any fun to-day,' 'and they picked up
their guns and went out and droye the
imperial soldiers from their barricades
without losing a man.
Eighteen or twenty British and United
States reporters came along, also
young Mr. Lowrle, who broke down and
wept when he met his wife and friends,
whom he had mourned as -dead. .It
was a surprise to us to hear the rumors
of our massacre in dctajl. Prison and
hanging are too good for some jouonalIsts.
Sick at IJpqrt. .
Our danger was Rreat, but God's omnipotent
hand saved us. The stories we
hear of missionary friends, their sufferings,
In many cases of their murder,
make us sick at heart. We cannot
speak of Pao Ting Fu friends to each
other. Their massacre has been proven
beyond a doubt. A trusted servant
came from there and relates that their \
homos were burned, then all were led .
In a company to a Boxer's yard, by the
river, and beheaded, except Mr. Pitkin,
who was executed in his own yard. One
small woman was so overcome she had
to be carried, l^r. Taylor's head wac
presented to the yamen authorities as
an offering. Fifty-one missionaries
were murdered in the yamen belonging
to the governor of Shan Si, whither
the empress had tied with hor court.
As I think of all these murders and
outrages I almost lose my self-control.
Our trip from Peking to Tien Tsln
was most uncomfortable. We were deserted
by the major in charge of the !
conwy, on a sandbar for ten hours, and
had a disagreeable time generally. The
river banks were strewn with the dead
bodies of Chinese. The river banks
were lined with corn, t'-nd the soldiers
fired at every rustlp among the loaves,
for they Intend to keep the way clear.
We left Peking ?I> the of August.
The ejty has been looted and a great
portion burned,

and we enjoyed It ho much?n tablecloth

there, also Captain Bailey, military

There Is no American transport here;
no steamers running, flo we all expect
to leave here on Wednesday, August
29, on a Urltlah transport that curries
us for $3 (Mexican money) a day. clear
to Calcutta. This Is less than by
steamer to Shanghai. We'pnlfur to-return
via Europe when we can do so
without extra expense and onl.V a week
or two difference in time. The thing
that recommends it most to me Is that
we can visit the doctor's parents tlrst;
then on home where I can stay a good
long time. I know that when I Ret
home I will wish to stay. This homegoing
is so different from what we planned.

to tear ourselves from our little darling's
grave In Peking.
