Throughout 1925, the diary is easy to remember. However, in this year, there is a big event. The incident itself is the reason why Hu Shi deliberately avoided it in his diary. In July of that year, he received a letter from Cao Chengying.
The cover of this letter is written in English by Dr. Hu Shi of Peking University. In fact, it was transferred from Tianjin by Cao Chengke, Cao Chengying's brother. At that time, Cao Chengke was a professor at Nankai University. The postmark of the letter shows that the post office is "Tianjin government".
Why? From the content of the letter, Cao Chengying seems to be worried about being known about their relationship. Because she wrote, "well We need to pay attention to our correspondence during this holiday. Do you think so? But I know you are the most cautious and able to write, probably not important You can send a letter directly to Wangchuan. It's even better that we don't write with names. I don't know if it's you who wrote it. How about I write to you? Either by my brother or directly to the mailbox. If you send it directly to the mailbox, I don't think you and I will write my name, then no one else knows who wrote it. Do you think so? "
This makes Hu Shi sad. He can feel that Cao Chengying has to be an anonymous underground lover. And the last paragraph of the letter made him almost cry Brother Zhu! Let me shout my love here. I will speak in a proper way in the future. I love you. I love you with all my heart. After I go home, I still love you as I do now. Please rest assured I wish you all the happiness of my love! "That is, the declaration of love. Hu Shi, who is afraid of it, is determined to divorce and marry Juan!
Therefore, Hu Shi proposes divorce to Jiang Dongxiu!
The intensity of Jiang Dongxiu's reaction was far beyond Hu Shi's expectation. She took scissors to stab Hu Shi. After being stopped, she rushed into the kitchen and took a kitchen knife. She threatened Hu Shi and said, "if you want a divorce, I'll kill the two sons first! I don't want your son!"
Hu Shi believed that his "vulgar" wife could say and do, and he was stupid and sober. If the two sons are divorced, one is that their lives are hard to protect, and the other is that his reputation, which Dr. Hu has carefully maintained for a long time, will be destroyed once and lose face greatly. It's better to give up your love quietly than to make everyone know. In this way, Hu Shi compromised: no divorce, let Cao Chengying abortion.
"Abortion" is not found in Hu Shi's diary, but only said by people familiar with the matter.
Cao Chengying's suffering can be imagined. She had an abortion, but she couldn't fall in love with Hu Shi. For this reason, Hu Shi wrote a poem in 1926, throwing away
Trouble is hard to escape - or love him not love?
His hair is sparse and white, so he can't bear the new debt of Acacia.
Go and ask him, ask him to throw me away.
He said, "I'll sing my song, even if you don't agree with me!"
Before long, Cao Chengying was admitted to the school of agriculture, Nanjing Central University, where he worked with later physicist Wu Jianxiong and biologist Wu Suxuan. Later, recommended by Hu Shi, she was admitted to Cornell University College of agriculture.
