Additional Information: In 2010, Renmin University of China acquired a collection of documents from ancient Khotan, Xinjiang. The main part of the collection is a group of manuscripts written in several languages, including both religious texts and secular documents such as official documents and economic texts. The edition of the Sogdian part of the collection, which amounts to thirteen items, was first presented in two articles in the Journal of the American Oriental Society. The first (Bi and Sims-Williams 2010) contained the edition of four economic documents (nos. 1–4), while the second article (Bi and Sims-Williams 2015) included one nearly complete letter (no. 5), five fragments of letters (nos. 6–10) and some tiny scraps of which too little is preserved for the contents to be clearly identified (nos. 11–13). The present bilingual (English and Chinese) edition incorporates the contents of both articles, with some revisions, as well as a complete glossary.
