Page 49, line 2, Prince Ling is the same individual as the Duke Ling of pp. 65, 250, 346.

[All such terms are, of course, arbitrary, being used merely as convenient equivalents of the Chinese titles in the text.]

Page 60, line 13, For "Hou I" read "Hou Yi." [This for the sake of uniformity. See pp. 255, 308, &c.]

Page 65, line 16, For "too short" read "too scraggy."

Page 65, line 20, For "too thin" read "too scraggy."

Page 72, line 4, For "Chi Tzŭ Hsü Yü" read "Chi Tzŭ, Hsü Yü.'

Page 170, line 3 (from bottom), After "Duke Huan." omit the full stop.

Page 228, line 14, For "glow-worm" read "fire-fly."

Page 230, line 22, For "to the minister" read "to be the minister."

Page 314, last line, "Love for the people," &c. Compare p. 329, lines 17 and 18, "There is no difficulty," &c. The conflict between the meanings of these two passages has not been pointed out. The first passage is rendered by some commentators, "Not to be able to love the people is the," &c. Neither rendering is quite satisfactory; for reasons which would require quotations from the Chinese text.

Page 324, lines 15 and 26, For "Tzŭ Chi" read "Tzŭ Ch'i."

[These last three corrections mean that I have written names of places with a hyphen between the transliteration of the component Chinese characters, the names of men with a capital letter to the transliteration of each of the Chinese characters which go to make up the surname and personal name.]
