The question of the genuineness of this bowl has already been discussed at length in the July number of the Asiatic Quarterly Review, and it is unnecessary for me to say more here upon the question of differences of opinion. At the moment (August 17st) of correcting the first proofs, I have received no further information from specialists in China beyond such aids as I acknowledge in the following notes: if I have later any serious corrections to make, I will allude to them at the end (of course subject to the Editor's convenience). I have had one short note direct from the Manchu Viceroy Twanfang at Nanking, acknowledging the receipt of a photograph of the Inscription, and promising to send me a transcription in modern character so soon as he should have settled down at Tientsin, for which viceroyalty he was just at that moment leaving. His Excellency is a well-known connoisseur in old bronzes, and I am informed that his brother is also a specialist in ancient inscriptions. His Majesty's Consul at Chinkiang, who has made local enquiry, in forms me that the very similar bowl avec belonging to the Hsü family of Yang-chou Fu, (as mentioned by Dr Bushell) is no longer there. However, no rest will be given to any likely person of any rank or nationality until he disgorge any special knowledge he may possess, or obtain such from some one else.
