I Do Not Attempt To Explain The Difficulty About Fungul.

I fully agree with Sir H. Yule when he says that Polo spoke of Caugigu and of Bangala, probably of Anin, from report only.

However, I believe that Caugigu is the Kiao-Chi kwe of the Chinese, that Anin must be read Aniu, that Aniu is but a transcription of Nan-yue that both Nan-yue and Kiao-Chi represent Northern Annam, i.e. the portion of Annam which we call Tung-king. Regarding the tattooed inhabitants of Caugigu, let it be remembered that tattooing existed in Annam till it was prohibited by the Chinese during the occupation of Tung-king at the beginning of the 15th century. - H.C.]

NOTE 7. - Here the traveller gets back to the road-bifurcation near Juju, i.e. Chochau (ante p. 11), and thence commences to travel southward.

[Illustration: Fortified Villages on Western frontier of Kweichau. (From Garnier.)

"Chastians ont-il grant quantite en grandismes montagnes et fortres."]

[1] A passing suggestion of the identity of Kafchi Kue and Caugigu is made by D'Ohsson, and I formerly objected. (See Cathay, p. 272.)

[2] Cuiju might be read Ciuju - representing Siuchau, but the difficulty about Fungul would remain.

BOOK II. - Continued.

PART III. - JOURNEY SOUTHWARD THROUGH EASTERN PROVINCES OF CATHAY AND MANZI.

CHAPTER LX.

CONCERNING THE CITIES OF CACANFU AND OF CHANGLU.

Cacanfu is a noble city. The people are Idolaters and burn their dead; they have paper-money, and live by trade and handicrafts.
