An anthology of the author’s administrative writings and records as magistrate of Huixian 輝縣, in Weihui 衛輝 prefecture (Henan), between 1826 and 1835. (Gongcheng in the title was the original name of the county when it was created by the Sui.) It includes exhortations to the population on such topics as growing mulberry trees, weaving, planting trees, building roads, improving irrigation (on which Zhou appears to have been much focused), prohibitions against gambling, theater shows, and illegal religious activities, records on moving the local academy, establishing charitable schools, rebuilding sanctuaries, and more. The text is informative on administrative conditions in northern Henan in general.
