The Lin Brothers Get Paid



When the Lin Brothers had finished sweeping the Wong's courtyard it was late and Mrs. Wong, who controlled the family purse, had already gone to bed. The Wong's gate man refused to wake anyone in the household who had authority to see that the boys from Chai Yi were paid. It was also too late to walk back to town for dinner so he offered the brothers the stone floor of his guard house and a bowl of luke-warm tea.

  1. The image is gorgeous, the tale behind it very sad. Poor innocent children.

  5. Oh Jeanne-Ming thank you for your love.

    It is so nice to be back here and follow the story of this family. I love the sweet boys, but all they got was warm tea. Couldn't they have had some rice.

    Love to you.
