China. In Shanghai some time earlier a Chinese Philatelic Society was founded and Mr. M.D. Chow was elected as Chairman. This gentleman also declared himself ready to become Curator of a Postal Museum that is to be created and to donate his collection, in which he had invested 100,000 silver dollars, as the foundation [of this museum]. However, he has declined a ministry position! An exemplary philatelist.
