'The first Chinaman in Newfoundland'

A daily taste of Newfoundlandia

“Kim Lee, the first Chinaman in Newfoundland, came by the Pretonian this morning after a two-year sojourn abroad. He spent seventeen months where he was born at China with his mother and two sisters, and seven months at London. Kim looks smart after his trip and feels glad to be at St. John’s once more.”

The Evening Chronicle, St. John’s, September 1911.
