Excerpt from Sigma Phi Epsilon Journal, Vol. 8: December 25, 1910
So far as I know I am the first and only 2 (i) E to take a hand in the extension of a work, in foreign lands, which has as its motive force and ultimate purpose the same ideals that we hold before us in our fraternity work. The privilege of being in a position to do something for the uplift and advancement of the people of this great land of China more than counterbalances any sacrifice I may have made to come here. In calling other 2 (i) E's, you who are sincerely desirous of finding out where you can best serve your fellow-men, I am not calling you to make a great sacrifice, though some sacrifice is expected as a natural consequent, but I do call you to come and have a share in one of the greatest opportunities for fraternal service that the history of the world has ever presented. You are not limited to any particular phase of the work. If you are thinking simply of making money you had better not try China unless you have good strong financial backing but there is a place in business, in educa tional work, general and technical, in medicine and in actual evan gelistic work for the man who has imbibed the principles for which we stand to the extent that he can get out of his provincialism and see things in a world-perspective. To all such men I extend an inviting hand to come to this land and help instill into the hearts of the young men of China the ideals that we consider worthy of the young men of America.
