Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from New Excursions from the Hall of Harmonious Wind by Cunren Liu (Brill Archive, 1984): "I was born tiny and weak, as I was two months premature.... at the capital, Peking. It was a Saturday, 11 August 1917, about one o'clock in the morning, if you want to work out my horoscope."
