Statement
I was born at No. 900 Dupont Street (I do not know over which store). I lived in that house five years. I then went to China with my father, Jung Chuck Sing, my mother G-See, and my sister, Jung Muoy. My parents died in China last year. My sister is now on this vessel. I intend to live with her in this city. I am not married nor engaged to be married. I do not remember anything about this city nor anyone who lived here when I did.
