A Chinese Biographical Dictionary/Chan Huo

18Chan Huo 展獲 (T. 禽, changed at 50 years of age to 季). 6th and 7th cent B.C. Governor of the District of 柳下 Liu-hsia in the Lu State. He was a man of eminent virtue, and is said on one occasion to have held a lady in his lap without the slightest imputation on his moral character. When he died, his wife insisted on pronouncing a funeral oration over his body, urging that none knew his great merits so well as she. He was canonised as 惠 Hui, and is now commonly known as Liu-hsia Hui.
