HC Deb 13 June 1907 vol 175 c1590

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that Mr. Edward Eadie, who was assaulted by Chinese on 18th June, 1906, is still without the compensation which was asked from the Chinese Government for him as an act of grace; and whether the said Mr. Eadie, who is still sick and in need of medical treatment, should accept the offer he has had from the Taotai of Amoy of payment of his medical expenses, or whether he should wait a further interval for such compensation as may be paid by the Chinese Government.


The Chinese authorities have agreed, as an act of grace, to pay a sum of 11,000 dollars in compensation for the injuries inflicted upon MR. Eadie and his companion, Dr. Home. Of this sum it is proposed that Dr. Home, who was much more seriously injured, should receive 10,000 dollars. Mr. Eadie will therefore receive a sum of 1,000 dollars.
