CommentRem.: Administrative documents, judicial decisions, correspondences, etc., composed by the author while he was magistrate in three counties or departments in Anhui from 1899 to 1901. Each chapter has a detailed table of contents giving the content, format, and date of the documents included. J. 1 contains documents from the author’s tenure in Shidai 石埭 and Huaining 懷寧, mostly in the form of reports (bing or cheng) or public pronouncements (shi), many of which discuss his attempts to control sectarianism and banditry in these areas; it concludes with a postscript summarizing the author’s experiences in these posts. J. 2 is composed of documents composed during the first two months of the author’s tenure in Hezhou 和州 (third to fifth lunar months of 1901). The documents in j. 3 also deal with the author’s service in Hezhou; the date from the period between sixth and eleventh month, 1901. The documents in j. 2 are more particularly devoted to problems of defense, those in j. 3 to problems of famine relief. J. 3 concludes with a second author’s postface emphasizing the difficulties he encountered in Hezhou and the energetic action he took against banditry and famine.
