General note

The item with Chinese text was a receipt of an annual membership fee of one dollar issued to Mr. Zheng Qingliang (Mandarin pinyin of the person's name) by the Cumberland Branch of the Zheng clan association. The clan association was commonly known as Cheng Wing Yeong Tong society (with its headquarters in Vancouver). The receipt was dated January 4th in the 13th year of the Republic of China (1924). It’s uncertain whether it was Chinese lunar or Gregorian date.
