Ayscough and Lowell collaborated on a book of translations of Chinese poetry, Fir-Flower Tablets, published in 1921, with Ayscough supplying literal translations from the Mandarin for Lowell to turn into finished poems.
The Ayscoughs moved to Canada in 1923, settling in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick. Francis Ayscough died in 1933.
In 1935, Florence Ayscough married another sinologist, Harley Farnsworth McNair (1891-1947), who became professor of Chinese history at the University of Chicago. Beginning in 1938 Ayscough also began lecturing at the University of Chicago, on Chinese literature.
