Excerpt from Death Blow to Corrupt Doctrines: A Plain Statement of Facts
The book of which this pamphlet is a translation came into the hands of the missionaries in Teng-chow, Shantung, several months since, though it is only recently that special attention has been given to its contents. In the present juncture of affairs in China we regard it as of too much importance to be with held from the foreign public, believing as we do that it is a remarkably truthful representation of the animus of the ruling and literary classes of China towards foreigners, and such a representation as is rarely met with. We believe also that it has been large ly instrumental in giving rise to the vile and slan derons stories concerning foreign residents and native Christians which have recently spread throughout China; and that it sheds important light on the means by which the recent massacre at Tien-tsin was brought about. No mere description however full, could possibly convey any adequate idea i f its vileness and deadly animosity. Moreover, it has been secretly used as a powerful engine against us, and one which in the circumstances we have no means of successfully resisting. Hence we publish it that its contents and the spirit which prompted it, may be fully known.
