Twenty-eight Chinese were killed and fifteen wounded, some of whom later died. The homes of seventy-nine Chinese people were set ablaze and the bodies of many of the dead and wounded thrown into the flames

    This date never existed, neither did the following ten days.

    This was due to England adopting the Gregorian Calendar. People rioted in the streets as they believed that the government had stolen eleven days of their lives. :D
