JapSin I, (38/42) 40/9b
By He xianggong 何相公.
Manuscript, folios 123–130.
Chinese bamboo paper, one volume.
24.5 x 14.5 cm.
On folio 121 there is a Portuguese inscription: “Sobre controversias.” Folio 123 bears the title and another Portuguese inscription: “Este Tratado he do Ho Siam Cum Christião de Fo kien Kiu gin que da Corte o deo à o P. Gabiani V. Prl.”The only information we have about the xianggong He is that he was a juren 舉人 (licentiate) of Fujian and a Christian. We have made mention of this book when speaking about the Liyi wenda (cf. Jap-Sin I, [38/42] 40/7b). The contents of these two books are almost the same, except for the order they follow. The present book, however, is not written in the style of question and answer.
