Chinese and East Asian presence in London, 1785

1785: The Times (London) has an account of a serious fight between “Chinese Tartars” and “Lascars”(Indian seamen) in Stepney, London.  They fought with “swords, long knives, and other offensive weapons”.

The Chinese seem to have had the advantage of numbers, as when one was badly injured his enraged friends “collected a large reinforcement from Cock-Hill, Limehouse, Blackwall etc"   The Indians were staying at a house in Stepney, and “great numbers” of the Chinese “took up their abode in the Green Dragon, in the neighbourhood.”

 Report in The Times, 17 October 1785, p.3

“I’m a big country, so I know I’ll be just as tall as you one day!”

“Hah, you wish!”


so grateful for the overwhelming love for rosamund already !!! wow you guys are sweet ❤️❤️💕❤️💕💕❤️💕

also yes i love to read tags

rosamund as a different class: probably a dark mage. her magic, skill, and luck stats are her greatest assets, so it’s best to make her a mage or some kind of assassin. hypothetically if she ever became an adventurer she would insist on using a shining bow > <
i might map out all her possible re classes later. this whole fatesona thing is damn fun 👍
