Col. Sleeman Visits Hospital

Cheung Chow, Today.

   Although the Easter weather was not at its best, quite a few visitors spent their holidays, or part thereof, at Cheung Chau.

   A mixed company of scouts encamped on the hillside beyond No. 30, two house owners came over with their families, two or more launch parties also paid a visit and house parties were held.

   A young peoples' early service was held in the hall. Visitors arriving on Saturday evening were treated on arrival to a sharp shower. On the early ferry, a party of about 20 members of the Fraternity Church came to spend the day, taking their meals at 18A.

   Again the Ferry Company caused great inconvenience by taking off the "Sun Chow" for overhaul during the holidays and substituting a smaller boat which was overcrowded and most awkward to disembark from.

   We understand that the scouts are remaining in camp until the end of the week.

   Mr. A.Morris and Col. J.L.Sleeman paid a second visit to the Haw Par Hospital here on Saturday last. -Our Own Correspondent.
