“Graduating Address of Yan Phou Lee at Yale College: The Other Side of The Chinese Question” delivered in 1887, Lee, Yan Phou (1861-date of death is unknown).

The text of Yan Phou Lee’s speech was found in The Project Gutenberg’s The American Missionary, Volume 41, no. 9 (September 1887): 269-273. The eBook #57108 was made available in May 6, 2018, through Distributed Proofreaders and can be found online at:

We could find no audio or video recordings of the speech and to the best of our knowledge, The American Missionary is the only copy-text available. We believe the copy-text best reflects Lee’s address before the 1887 graduating class at Yale College.

The copy-text presented here (=A) closely follows the text in The American Missionary to best preserve Lee’s voice. Punctuation and paragraph structure follow the eBook’s format. Paragraph numbers were added in brackets. The transcript has been proofread for accuracy.
