HC Deb 09 May 1893 vol 12 cc454-5

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the funds collected by Madame Thoumaïan in Great Britain were exclusively for the non-political medical hospital open to persons of all creeds at Marsovan, Asia Minor; whether he is aware that Dr. Herrick, the President of Marsovan College now in London, and other well-known missionaries, testify to the high character of Pastor ThomnaÏan and Mr. Kujadjian; and if he will state the result, or progress of the trials?


I am aware that the statement in the first paragraph has been made by Madame ThoumaÏan and is confirmed by the Superintendent of the Mildmay Conference Hall, who has invested the money collected. I have reason to believe that the opinion of Dr. Herrick is correctly stated, and, as soon as information is received, I shall be ready to state the result or progress of the trial.
