"乾州" means a city nowadays in Hunan province. "王氏" means a man whose name is "王氏" or a man whose first name is "王".

  • I'm afraid that I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you on the characters in the upper and lower right corner which appear to refer to the emperor Qianlong. More feedback is welcome

    @AOD, it is not 乾隆 (Qianlong). i.stack.imgur.com/JYwgw.png ; 乾州 is correct
