Title
Letter from Venetia Cox to B. T. Cox
Description
A handwritten letter from Venetia Cox at the Anglican Mission's Chung Te School in Peking [Beijing], China, to her mother, B. T. Cox, in Winterville, North Carolina. She writes that she was excused from her Chinese language exams, she still has visitors coming and going in the house, and she purchased silk lanterns in the city yesterday. She mentions she attended a lecture about the relationship between China and Japan and briefly discusses her own views on the subject. She remarks that her Chinese teacher said he would write to her and "these Chinese men are so effeminate." A native of Winterville, Venetia Cox was an Episcopal missionary music teacher in mainland China between 1917 and 1950.
