Abstract

On page 278 of my article, “The Controversy Over Grain Conveyance During the Reign of Qubilai Qaqan, 1260–94,” which appeared in the May 1954 Number of the Far Eastern Quarterly (13.3), I translated Hsing Ch'uan Fu Ssu as the Ambulatory Office for Ch'uan-chou. It should be translated as the Ambulatory Money Bureau, inasmuch as it was a branch of the Ch'uan Fu Ssu or the Money Bureau which was in existence from 1281 to 1311. (Cf. Yang Lien-sheng, Money and Credit in China, [Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1952], 97.)
