Inscription on the Triumph of the People
of Wuhan over the Flood.
(1954)

Source: Quoted in "Zuguo de shan shan shui shui shan yao zhuo Mao Zedong sixiang de guanghui, (The Hills and Rivers of Our Country Sparkle with the Glory of Mao Zedong Thought)", in RMRB ( Oct 2, 1976), 2.

In 1954, the stretch of the Yangtze River near Wuhan overflowed its banks and caused severe damage. Mao's inscription here was awarded to the people of Wuhan who took part in bringing the deluge under control.

We must still be prepared to do battle against and overcome similarly severe floods that may occur in the future.


Inscription for Historical Pavilion
in Caixi xiang, Fujian Province.
(1954)

Source: Reprinted in Li Shuliang, "Guangrong de Caixi xiang (Glorious Caixi xiang)", in Jiefangjun huabao, 67 ( Jul. 1957).

This was an inscription written upon the rebuilding of a pavilion in Caixi xiang, Shanghang xian, Fujian, which was first built in 1933 when Caixi xiang was commended by the Central Soviet as a model village. It was intended for the display of awards, banners, and rolls of the revolutionary martyrs of Fujian Province. It was destroyed, and subsequently rebuilt in 1954.
