Asan.  October 10, 1875.

Poor old man Francisco Champaco.  A Chinese settler on Guam, who became a Catholic and married a Chamorro woman, he had the misfortune of being attacked by three men believed to be some of the many deported convicts (presidarios) brought to Guam at the time.  They hit him with a club and stabbed him in the lower abdomen.  His wife was also attacked, but less seriously.

They stole some thirty pesos and a quantity of rice.

But he survived.
