(1) This banner was bordered on the southeast by the banner that appears in M002. Nine relay stations were established within this territory. Along either side of the post road on the map there are 30 annotations indicating the existence of conflicts between relay stations and the banner over the use of pasture lands. Some of these notes indicate that an area as wide as 30 or 70 gazar on either side of a relay station was to be reserved for the station, but that the actual boundaries were still under dispute at the time the map was prepared (188, 195, 207, 210-212, 246, 251-257, 277, 281, 283, 285-288, 290-291, 293-294, 329-333 in “INDEX BY LOCATION”). In this banner no such boundaries were ever defined and thus no oboos between the station and the banner were built – unlike the case of the banner of M002. (See Нацагдорж 1978: 178.)
(2) The Govi Mergen Van Ananda-Ochir, the ruling prince of this banner, was notorious as a “wastrel” (Lattimore & Isono 1982: 77).
