Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes him relating the story of his birth in the autobiographical book "Little Foreign Devil" by Desmond Power (Pangli, 1996), p. 83: “Dog or Pig, I'm not sure. It was Chinese New Year's Eve. The year was 1923 according to the Western calendar.” “Is that so? Tell me then at what hour of the day were you born.” “Right at midnight, according to my amah." “Did you hear that?” the ancient addresses the crowd. “He was born during the hour of the Rat, at the moment of transition when the Dog gave way to the Boar;" p. 155: "I am Tientsin born and bred." Note: 16 February was Chinese New Year's eve in 1923.
