                In Tang Dynsaty, correspondence was not as important as Northern sung after Su Shi and Huang Tingjian. Even Auyang Xiu thought, reading and collecting the correspndence, could help people remember and respect the predecessor. During Ming dynasty, the number of collection and circulation of correspndence is increasing.Correspondence in Jinmotang Calligraphy Research Foundation's collection mainly focus from Ming to Qing period. We are glad to introduce 6 copies of correspondence dated from Chenghua to Jiajing period from which we could imagine the social life and obligation among literati.
