NOTES.


——————


[The writer regrets his inability to furnish the Chinese characters promised on page 1.—The M.S. of them, besides some lithographed plates and other papers, of which use would have been made in this publication, were lost during the Vandal-like proceedings of the Hongkong Government for what was deemed a libel on its Lieutenant Governor in 1859.]

LETTER TO THE NORTH-CHINA HERALD.

The appended wood cut gives an approximation to the tracks out and home. As stated above, the distance and course from Fong-je-how, by the Canal and River Tsien-tang to Fu-yang, had to be guessed at; and the following latitudes and longitudes of the cities visited, as found in the Chinese Repository for 1844, do not coincide with the places laid down on the Southern line.
