Résumé: The author, Mrs. Archibald Little, spouse of the famous traveler and writer, quotes the relation of a friend's of her published in a local gazette. In quest of the new Board of trade (shangbu, in this text: shang-pou), this businessman was led by his ricshaw man accross Caishikou, the field of executions. A large crowd is attending an execution by dismemberment (lingchi) which, very likely, is Wang Weiqin's execution in October 1904; the man urged toward Shangbu, but was later narrated the execution by an eyewitness, which is therefore reported quite indirectly!
