Dear Mr. Lee:
Your description of Tsung-Tsin Assoc.of Seattle sounds so simular to the
experience I had a month ago when I when up to visit the Tsung-Tsin
Assoc. on the corner of Doyer and Catherine Street in New York
Chinatown. There were also many elderly gentlemen (no women that I saw)
playing Majong. Doyer Street (once called the "Hat Street" and two
streets from Mott Street, the heart of old Chinatown) appears to be the
original street of the Hakka Community in the predominant Taishan
dominated New York Chinatown.
I am begining to investigat the history of the Hakka community and
Tsung-Tsin Assoc. in New York and their relationship to the Taishans.
The starting point of my inquiry are the Tsung-Tsin Assoc. and churches
in Hongkong as well the Basel Mission archival materials on Wuhua (the
work of Karl Gutzlaff and Rudolf Lechler that Professor Jessie Lutz had
been writing about).
Do you have any material on the history of the Tsung-Tsin Assoc. in the
United States (as well as the rest of the world)?
