ms., Bi Fangji zouzhe 畢方濟奏摺, memorial presented by Francesco Sambiasi on the 6th day of the 12th month (i.e. January 3, 1645), asking for a burial place for João Rodrigues (d. 1633); ZKW copy-booklet, 4 ff. (10/20). note 56: Xu and Chen Yuan do not give a date (Pfister 143: 1633). P. Hoang reproduced it (in a version slightly different from the present text) under the year 1639; Zhengjiao fengbao (145R), ff. 17a-18b (cf. DMB 1147b). As the text speaks of a new reign (Longfei 龍飛, f. 16b) and of the reform of the calendar under the previous Emperor, Sambiasi must have presented it to the Hongguang Emperor (Southern Ming, 1644-1645) in Nanjing; cf. M. Cooper, Rodrigues the Interpreter (New York, 1974)-- Cf. Adrian Dudink, "The Zikawei Collection" (Sino-Western Cultural Relations Journal XVIII (1996)), p.21.
