It is said that Spirit of 12 Words, a national treasure, was wandered from Yuan-ming-yuan to locals when the Eight-Power Allied Forces invaded China. Hsing-rang-tieh was collected by Chang Tachien years later. He paid a visit to Japan and carried it with him along the trip. It was then kept at the home of Nishikawa, a Japanese calligrapher, for a while. Now it is kept in the art museum of Princeton University which was listed as the museum that keeps the most quantity of Chinese calligraphy in the United States of America.
