As stated above, the distance and course from Fong-je-how, by the Canal and River Tsien-tang to Fu-yang, had to be guessed at; and the following latitudes and longitudes of the cities visited, as found in the Chinese Repository for 1844, do not coincide with the places laid down on the Southern line.
