Fei Ch'i-hao was a Chinese Christian. Here he recounts the activities of the millenialist "Boxers" in the Boxer Rebellion of 1900.
THE GATHERING OF THE STORM
The people of Shansi are naturally timid and gentle, not given to making disturbances, being the most peaceable people in China. So our Shansi Christians were hopeful for themselves, even when the reports from the coast grew more alarming. But there was one thing which caused us deep apprehension, and that was the fact that the wicked, cruel YU Hsien, the hater of foreigners, was the newly appointed Governor of Shansi. He had previously promoted the Boxer movement in Shantung, and had persuaded the Empress Dowager that the Boxers had supernatural powers and were true patriots.
Ian, would you be happy if we placed Yü Hsein in there instead of Wu Chow?

Sorry i misunderstood that. but i prefer the way it is now.do the peasants, imperial army, hsi-hua men north and hsi-hua men south meet at a four-way? the position of the border indicator gives rise to questions and i'd prefer to see it moved up or down slightly to avoid what looks like a four-way.
well yes that is a four-way however i am aware of such things, and there is a small wall there to stop that being taken as a 4 way,. but i will enlarge it seeing you didn't see it.hall of imperial household is missing the of.
That is deliberate to keep some consistency with the other terts that cannot filt Hall of....with the exception of course of the three middle halls.
