Save Money On Flights

The Pattern Is A Fanciful Medley Of Animals And Arabesques, But It Is Scarcely Distinguishable, Save As A General Tint, Except On A Fair Skin." (Mission To Ava, 151.)

[1] Indeed documents in Klaproth's Asia Polyglotta show that the Pape state was also called Muang-Yong (pp.

364-365). I observe that the river running to the east of Pu-eul and Ssemao (Puer and Esmok) is called Papien-Kiang, the name of which is perhaps a memorial of the Pape.

[The old Laocian kingdom of Xieng-mai [Kiang-mai], called Muong-Yong by the Pa-y, was inhabited by the Pa-pe Si-fu or Bat-ba T'uc-phu; the inhabitants called themselves Thai-niai or great Thai. (Deveria, Frontiere, p. 100. Ch. ix. of the Chinese work Sze-i-kwan-kao is devoted to Xieng-mai Pa-pe), which includes the subdivisions of Laos, Xieng Hung [Kiang Hung] and Muong-Ken. (Deveria, Mel. de Harlez, p. 97.) - H.C.]

CHAPTER LVII.

CONCERNING THE PROVINCE OF ANIN.

Anin is a Province towards the east, the people of which are subject to the Great Kaan, and are Idolaters. They live by cattle and tillage, and have a peculiar language. The women wear on the legs and arms bracelets of gold and silver of great value, and the men wear such as are even yet more costly. They have plenty of horses which they sell in great numbers to the Indians, making a great profit thereby. And they have also vast herds of buffaloes and oxen, having excellent pastures for these.
