die seit unserem ersten Besuch in Thailand 1974 mit mir die Liebe zu den und die Sorge um die Bewohner Thailands teilt.

 


Vorsicht bei den Statistikdiagrammen!

Bei thailändischen Statistiken muss man mit allen Fehlerquellen rechnen, die in folgendem Werk beschrieben sind:

Morgenstern, Oskar <1902 - 1977>: On the accuracy of economic observations. -- 2. ed. -- Princeton : Princeton Univ. Press, 1963. -- 322 S. ; 20 cm.

Die Statistikdiagramme geben also meistens eher qualitative als korrekte quantitative Beziehungen wieder.

1858

Rama IV. besucht mit großem Gefolge die östlichen Provinzen.

1858

Einige Haremsdamen machen von ihrem Recht (von 1854) Gebrauch, den Harem zu verlassen. Königlicher Erlass dazu:

"Twelve ladies have been granted leave to resign by Royal Permit without the benefit of a grant of annuity." The first four, who were mostly in their late thirties, "entered the Service in the reign of His Majesty, King Phra Nang Klao. The two first named were promoted to the rank of Lady Consort attached to the Royal Bed Chamber. The third lady, however, remained without any special assignment. The fourth lady served as one of the Miladies of the Lamp. In the present reign the first two were moved down to serve as Miladies of the Lamp and Tea Service. The’" third lady was moved up to the Royal Bed Chamber, whilst the fourth remained in her former post. The four having expressed their wishes to seek physical and spiritual comfort outside the Royal Palace, were granted leave to resign."

Then followed the names of the other eight—all but one fifteen or sixteen years old.

"The eight ladies above referred to entered the Service in the Present Reign. The first lady served as Milady of the Royal Sword, but had to resign on being stricken with a nervous breakdown. The second and third ladies entered the Service after the death of their father for the purpose of getting a larger share in the inheritance of the deceased for the reason of having entered into His Majesty’s Service. Having been awarded their duly increased shares of the inheritance, they resigned.

The rest on the list are gifted dancers. A difference of opinion arose with regard to the fourth and fifth ladies. Their respective fathers wanted them to remain in the Service, but the ladies themselves and their respective mothers decided in favour of resignation. Wherefore, His Majesty gave them leave to resign. The sixth lady was much feared in the Palace for her dangerous eye and ear. After a violent quarrel with her friends in the Palace she was permitted to resign on the approval of her parents. As for the seventh on the list, the lady was possessed of doubtful beauty. Her mannerism was altogether over-cultivated. Considering that she might be desirable in the eye of someone who desired her, His Majesty graciously granted her leave to resign. The eighth and last lady on the list was afflicted with the malady of fast hand, and having been found by responsible persons in the Palace to be untrustworthy with valuables and such like, was advised to resign from the Service.

The twelve ladies above named are now resigned from the Palace and are wholly free to pledge their services to any prince or noble. Should there be any such a prince or noble who would desire any of them in marriage, His Majesty would gladly and sincerely offer them congratulations. That a man should be free to choose a woman of his heart’s desire is the wish of His Majesty, and so happy He will feel to know that the satisfaction of any such man is shared by any of the ladies who recently resigned. In fact, His Majesty might have gone one step further by graciously giving the said ladies away in marriage; but he was restrained by the consideration that He might have erred in His choice to the dismay of the parties concerned. Wherefore, the present middle course has been adopted in the hope that the honour and liberality of His Majesty will be firmly established in the newly founded custom."

"Die Thanon Silom (ถนนสีลม - wörtl.: Windmühlen-Straße, im englischen Sprachgebrauch: Silom Road) ist eine Straße im Bezirk Bang Rak (บางรัก) von Bangkok, der Hauptstadt von Thailand.

Geschichte

Westlich der Charoen Krung Road (ถนนเจริญกรุง, auch New Road genannt) befanden sich früher Viertel mit nur wenigen Häusern und vielen Gemüsefeldern und Obstplantagen. Die erste Kanalstraße wurde sozusagen als Nebenprodukt zu einem Khlong erschaffen, der als Verbindung vom Chao-Phraya-Fluss zum Khlong Hualamphong (heute ist er zugeschüttet, die Thanon Rama IV – ถนนพระรามที่ 4 - Rama-IV.-Straße – befindet sich über ihm) ausgeschachtet wurde. Die ausgehobene Erde wurde benutzt, um das Niveau der Silom Road über Hochwasserniveau zu erheben. Dies Projekt wurde von der Regierung finanziert und im Jahre 1858 fertiggestellt. Spätere Straßen, die bald parallel zur Silom angelegt wurden, wie die Thanon Satorn (ถนนสาทร) oder die Thanon Surawong, wurden privat finanziert. Der Name der „Silom“ (สีลม) stammt von den zahlreichen Windmühlen ab, die Wasser aus dem Khlong auf die umliegenden Gemüsegärten pumpten. Ähnliche Windmühlen (สมุทรสาคร) aus Bambus und Tuch werden noch heute südöstlich von Bangkok in Samut Sakhon benutzt, um Salzwasser aus dem Meer zur Gewinnung von Salz in Salinen zu pumpen. Eine moderne Stahl-Skulptur, die an diese Mühlen erinnern soll, steht seit 1998 einige Meter nördlich der Silom Road am Ufer des Khlong Chong Nongsi, der quer zur Silom Road in der Mitte der Narativat Rajanakarin Road entlangführt.

Etwa in der Mitte der Silom Road befand sich zwischen Soi 9 und Soi 11 (ซอย - Soi: Thai für „Nebenstraße“) bis vor wenigen Jahren ein sehr alter Friedhof mit vielen christlichen, aber auch einigen chinesischen Gräbern. In den 1990er Jahren war das Gelände bereits abgeschlossen, der Friedhof schien irgendwie aufgegeben worden zu sein, was aber zu seiner Atmosphäre beitrug. Im Jahr 2000 fing die Stadtverwaltung von Bangkok damit an, die zum Teil sehr pittoresken Grüfte abzureißen. Erst gegen Ende 2004 konnten die Abrissarbeiten fertiggestellt werden.

Aus einem Brief von Rama IV. an den Leiter und den stellvertretenden Leiter der siamesischen Gesandtschaft nach London:

"A great number of Englishmen have been and are now residing in this country. They seem to have an accurate knowledge of everything that is to be known here, but it is rather regrettable that they still retain a fixed idea regarding four phenomena characteristic to this country. The four unchanging phenomena, according to them, are that the river running through Bangkok has no other name but "Menam" [its name is the "Chao Phya"; "menam" means "river"]; that three-quarters of the houses in Bangkok are built in water, only one quarter being built on dry land; that nine parts out of ten of the local population are Chinese; and that the First King is a decrepit old man, so weak and thin and stupid as to be entirely incapable of conducting any official business. The only reason why he ever became King at all was that he happened to be elder brother to the Second King, who is actually at the head of affairs, and by whom both the present Treaty with Great Britain and the Embassy to that country have been originated. The First King is really so ancient that his power of speech is now restricted to only "ohs" and "ahs," punctuated by meaningless nods of the head. Whenever he is called upon to receive foreign guests, the Second King must always be behind his back, to tell him what to say.

The Second King, on the other hand, is a strong young man ho delights in riding either a great tusker elephant in must, or a stallion over five sok [ศอก, seven and a half feet] high. His Majesty shoots every day, loves all things military, is so very learned and so full of culture as to become the central figure surrounded by worshiping pundits and the intelligentsia. The Second King is also a ladies’ man. ... I came to the throne when my age was four years less than the Second King’s present age, but I was then already alleged to be old. The Second King is now more than three years older than I was when I came to the throne, but people still say that he is a young man. He cannot make even a chance visit to any provincial towns without being offered the daughters of governors or officials. He went to Saraburi [สระบุรี] and came back with a daughter of the Deputy Governor; he went to Nakorn Ratchasima [นครราชสีมา] and came back with nine or ten Lao wives; he went to Phanat Nikhom [พนัสนิคม] and came back with a daughter of another Deputy Governor; and after his trip to Ratchaburi [ราชบุรี] in the sixth month last, he returned with another wife. I have not been able to discover the identity of her father.

As for me, I am always looked upon as an old man wherever I go. No one has ever presented me with his daughter, and I always have to return home empty-handed, on account of my being an ancient relic. Although my hair is getting thin, I am not really bald, and whatever hair there is left to me is naturally black without the aid of hair-dyes, but people looking at me from a distance always insist that I am completely bald. I have even gone to the expense of buying myself a riding cap, and have taken pains to go out riding wearing it with the hope of creating an impression of youthfulness. I was a failure; people still maintain that I am old and still refuse to give me their daughters. . . .

These false impressions have been going on for a long time now, no one has ever been able to rectify them, not even in Bangkok itself. If you, who are abroad, tell the truth, you will not be believed, since people have tried to make things sound otherwise by writing to the papers that the government of this country is carried on by the brains and influence of the Second King alone, the First King being aged to the point of imbecility. Have you not been a little careless in your speech, in making an understatement of the Second King’s military strength, which is in reality much greater than that of the First King? I have an uneasy feeling that people abroad may say that the Siamese Ambassadors are nothing but liars.

[...]

As regards the case of Para Intradit who has committed adultery with your wife, Sarapeth, I have ordered the judges to hold a trial. They have decided on fines and compensations amounting to over 28 catties of money [the equivalent of about U.S. $1,300 at that time]. The fines are not to be paid to the Government, but are to be paid to you, since I have sent you far away from home. I should like to bring to your notice the fact that the amount of fines decided by the Law Court in the case of abduction of one of the King’s women from a royal boat was a little more than one catty of money only [a little less than U.S. $50]."

Der amerikanische presbyterianische Missionar Daniel McGilvary (1828 - 1911) kommt nach Siam.

"Daniel McGilvary (1828-1911) was an American Presbyterian missionary who played an important role in the expansion of Protestantism in Northern Siam.

Throughout his life, his colleagues and the general public held McGilvary in great esteem, and businesses and government offices in Chiang Mai (เชียงใหม่) were officially closed in mourning on the day of his death.[1]

Biography

He was born 16 May 1828, in North Carolina, USA and, after a largely informal education, taught school until he entered Princeton Theological Seminary in 1853. He graduated from Princeton in 1856 and returned to NC to pastor two rural churches. He was ordained in 1857. In 1858 he arrived in Thailand (then Siam) as a member of the Bangkok Station, Siam Mission, Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, and married Sophia Royce Bradley in 1860.

In 1861, the McGilvarys participated in the opening of the Phetchaburi (เพชรบุรี) Station, the first Protestant missionary station outside of Bangkok. In 1867, the McGilvary family moved to Chiang Mai, the chief city of Thailand's northern dependencies, and founded a new Presbyterian mission, the Laos Mission. The McGilvarys worked alone for one year and were chiefly responsible for the conversion of six men by early 1869. Persecution of these Christians in September 1869 led to the execution of two, the scattering of the others, and the threatened closure of the Laos Mission.

McGilvary's perseverance, however, prevented the lapse of Protestant work in Northern Thailand. From 1870 until roughly 1890 McGilvary was the unofficial leader of the Laos Mission and took the leading hand in expanding its work including establishing several rural Christian communities which became important Christian centers. In 1878 he played a leading role in obtaining the so-called "Proclamation of Religious Toleration" from the Thai central government, which gave certain civil rights to northern Thai converts.

McGilvary took a number of exploratory tours, beginning in the 1870s, going as far as the Shan States in Burma and Yunnan Province (云南) in Southern China in the 1890s. Those tours inspired the Laos Mission with the vision of a greater mission to the Tai peoples of China and French Indochina, a vision which dominated mission work until the 1920s.

McGilvary supported theological training for northern Thai evangelists and pastors. He took a leading role in promoting central Thai literacy among the northern Thai and he played an important role in promoting mission school education, particularly female education. In 1888 McGilvary established a school in Chiang Saen District (เชียงแสน), Chiang Rai Province, that was moved to Chiang Rai (เชียงราย) city and eventually became Chiang Rai Witthayakhom School (โรงเรียนเชียงรายวิทยาคม), the oldest school in Northern Thailand.

McGilvary is also credited with introducing Western medicine into Northern Siam. He continued active evangelistic work, including visiting established Christian groups, up until his death on 22 August 1911, in Chiang Mai.

"McGilvary, Sophia Bradley (1839-1923)

Sophia McGilvary was the first woman missionary to serve in the Laos Mission and played a key early role in the introduction of women's education into northern Siam. She was the daughter of Dr. Dan Beach and Emelie Royce Bradley and was born in Bangkok on 8 October 1839. Her mother died in August 1845, and in 1847 her father took her and her two siblings to Oberlin, Ohio, where she went to school for a period. Her father, while in the United States, married Sarah Blachly in November 1848, and the family returned to Bangkok, where Sophia was home schooled by Sarah Bradley, one of the first women in the United States to receive a B.A. degree.

In 1860, Sophia married the Rev. Daniel McGilvary, a Presbyterian missionary; and in 1861, they joined the S. G. McFarlands in founding a mission station in Phet Buri [Phetchaburi - เพชรบุรี]. In April 1867, the McGilvary family founded the Laos Mission when they moved to Chiang Mai. Sophia conducted women's literacy classes, assisted in the translation of the Gospel of Matthew, and in about 1875 started a small class for Christian girls that was the seed for the founding of the Chiang Mai Girls' School in 1879. The McGilvarys had five children, three of whom became members of the Laos Mission."

US-Baptistenmissionar Dan Beach Bradley (1804 - 1873) über Knappheit von Baht-Münzen:

"The Royal Mint cannot nearly supply ticals for the merchants who bring in dollars to exchange. It turns out only enough to exchange $20,000 a week. Merchants and other foreigners under consular jurisdiction are allowed to go and exchange their dollars every Monday. As there are not ticals enough to exchange all the dollars presented, there has been a law made which gives each man the privilege of exchanging his proportion of the whole amount of dollars brought in that day. He may bring in $20,000 himself alone — and if there was no other person at the exchange but himself he would have the whole of the $20,000 exchanged. But as there are some 8 or 10 others with each 10 or 20 thousand he can get only his proportion among them. As I only had $196, my proportion was $12 for which I got 20 ticals. The whole amount presented that day was about $335,000."

Es erscheint die erste Nummer von Royal Gazette  (RG;  ราชกิจจานุเบกษา).

"Die Royal Thai Government Gazette oder kurz Royal Gazette (RG; Thai ราชกิจจานุเบกษา Ratcha Kitcha Nubeksa) ist eine offizielle Veröffentlichungsstelle für amtliche Bekanntmachungen der thailändischen Regierung.

Frühe Geschichte

Die Royal Gazette wurde erstmals am 15. März 1858 von König Mongkut (Rama IV.) herausgegeben, um Regierungsbeamte und die Öffentlichkeit über Neuigkeiten im Land zu informieren. Bereits 1839 hatte König Phra Nang Klao (Rama III.) 9.000 Kopien eines Gesetzes gegen den Handel und das Rauchen von Opium drucken lassen. Ansonsten hatten königliche Schreiber alle Dekrete per Hand auszufertigen.

König Mongkut (Rama IV.) ließ im Palast eine Druckerei einrichten, um die Royal Gazette zu veröffentlichen und offizielle Verlautbarungen der Regierung zu verbreiten. Es gilt als sicher, dass die ersten Texte der Royal Gazette in den Anfangsjahren aus der Feder des Königs stammten, denn die Veröffentlichungen wurden für etwa 18 Monate unterbrochen, als Rama IV. keine Zeit zum Texten hatte.

Im Mai 1874 begann König Chulalongkorn (Rama V.) mit der wöchentlichen Herausgabe der Gazette, wobei nun eine Seriennummer eingeführt wurde, an der man die verschiedenen Ausgaben erkennen kann. 1879 trat erneut eine Unterbrechung der Herausgabe ein, und erst 1882 - zur Hundertjahrfeier der Hauptstadt Bangkok - wurde die Herausgabe mit der Royal Gazette Special fortgesetzt. Seit 1884 erscheint sie wieder im wöchentlichen Rhythmus.

1889 wurde der Inhalt mehr an westlichen Standards angepasst. Ankündigungen der Regierung, Befehle des Königs, Gesetze und Richtlinien für Ministerien und Beamte erschienen nun ebenfalls in der Gazette.

Der Subskriptionspreis war acht Baht pro Jahr für Selbstabholer und zehn Baht pro Jahr für die Zusendung mit Boten."

Bericht der preußischen Kapitäne Woller und Krause an das preußische Außenministerium:

„Siams Handel und Schifffahrt ist in den letzten Jahren sehr bedeutend belebt worden durch die Handelstraktate von Großbritannien, Frankreich, Nord-Amerika und zuletzt Dänemark. Jetzt stehen die Hansestädte im Begriff, einen Handels- und Schifffahrtsvertrag mit Siam abzuschließen. Preußens Flagge hat lohnend Teil genommen an der hiesigen Schifffahrt und gegenwärtig sind zwei preußische Schiffe zugleich anwesend. Die Preuß. Flagge ist hier nicht vertreten oder anerkannt und nur dem gef.(älligen) Schutz und Unterstützungen des Großbritannischen General-Konsuls haben wir es zu danken, dass wir überhaupt zugelassen werden, weil ein von der hiesigen Regierung anerkannter Konsul seine Nation vertreten soll. Sir Robert Shomburgh hat dies bis jetzt gut für uns getan.

Es wäre dessen ungeachtet sehr wünschenswert für uns, hier einen preußischen Konsul ernennen lassen zu wollen, um danach einen Handels- und Schifffahrts-Vertrag einzuleiten und abzuschließen."

Nach der Niederschlagung des Sepoy-Aufstands übernimmt die britische Krone die Macht in Indien von der British East India Company. Indien wird nicht als Kolonie angesehen (untersteht nicht dem Colonial Office), sondern als besonderer Bestandteil des British Empire. Es untersteht darum dem India Office.

US-Baptistenmissionar Dan Beach Bradley (1804 - 1873) über den Defaitismus Ramas IV. bezüglich der kolonialen Zukunft Siams:

"... the usual thought among the Siamese rulers is that Siam is destined to pass into the hands of the English. They seem almost instinctively to think so and so to express themselves. And it is a remarkable fact that they are training no one for the Throne as if they really expect he will be called to it after the present incumbents shall have left it. My mind cannot light upon a single individual whom God seems in any way to be preparing for a future Sovereign in Siam. If I could see either of the present kings taking measures to educate some of their sons for the Throne as they themselves have been educated, I should by that providence be inclined to expect that the present Dynasty would be prolonged much beyond the days of the present sovereign. But they are doing no such thing. They seem to me to be wonderfully careless in educating their sons."
