[1] Industries Anciennes Et Modernes De L'Empire Chinois.

Paris, 1869, pp.

145, 149.

[2] Resume des principaux Traites chinois sur la culture des muriers et l'education des vers a soie, Paris, 1837, p. 98. According to the notions of the Chinese, Julien remarks, everything made from hemp like cord and weavings is banished from the establishments where silkworms are reared, and our European paper would be very harmful to the latter. There seems to be a sympathetic relation between the silkworm feeding on the leaves of the mulberry and the mulberry paper on which the cocoons of the females are placed.

[6] Ming Shi, Ch. 81, p. 1. - The same text is found on a bill issued in 1375 reproduced and translated by W. Vissering (On Chinese Currency, see plate at end of volume), the minister of finance being expressly ordered to use the fibres of the mulberry tree in the composition of these bills.
