CommentRem.: An anthology of the author’s administrative writings and records as magistrate of Hui county 輝縣, Weihui prefecture (Henan), between 1826 and 1835. (Gongcheng in the title was the original name of the county at the time of its foundation under the Sui dynasty.) It includes exhortations to the population on such topics as growing mulberry trees, weaving, planting trees, building roads, improving irrigation (a subject on which Zhou appears to have concentrated particularly), prohibitions against gambling, theater shows, and illegal religious activities, records on moving the local academy, establishing charitable schools, rebuilding sanctuaries, and the like. The text is informative on administrative conditions in Northern Henan in general.
