sb: Need help figuring out geography on this one. Sikang Sichuan is now Garzê Zangzu Zizhizhou according to geonames.org but I have not had time to do further research yet. also not sure if it says Chian+ or Chi and sb.2 from another contributor: I speak Chinese, I'm pretty sure that the place names here are old names from before the formation of the PRC. Si Kang (now transcribed as Xikang) is 西康 it's an old province that no longer exist. (http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/543883/Xikang) Szechuan is most likely a spelling mistake for "Szechuen", which is now spelt as "Sichuan" (四川) Now as for between "Yin Kuan Chian (Yng Kuan?" and "tatlu" that's a bit complicated, the area in question is now "Garzê Zangzu Zizhizhou" (literally, Garzê Tibetan ethnic self administrative area), and many of the old Chinese place names have been renamed into Tibetan as a political gesture.
