Annotation translation: "Huppenbauer." - "There are small fortresses on the hills in the background to which the inhabitants flee in times of danger or when bandits attack them. White graves lie scattered on the slopes lower down."
Annotation: "Huppenbauer." - "Auf den Hügeln im Hintergrund kleine Befestigungen, in welche sich die Einwohner der Gegend flüchten in unruhigen Zeiten oder bei Räuberüberfällen. In halber Höhe zerstreut liegende weisse Gräber."
Note: Da keiner der Missionare mit Namen Huppenbauer in China tätig war, ist unklar was dieser Name bei den Anmerkungen soll. (DS 12.2000).
Note translation: As there is no known missionary Huppenbauer, who worked in China, we don't know what this name means in the annotations. (DS 12.2000).
