Cheng-hua: Year 22, Month 7, Day 6
5 Aug 1486
Liu Tong, a reservist of the Teng-chong Guard in Yun-nan, had cheated Nang Han-nong of gold and precious stones and induced her to raise troops and engage in feuding and killing. When the events became known, he was sentenced to banishment in the Liao-hai Guard. However, as the events had occurred before the amnesty, he was due for a pardon. The Ministry of War advised: "If he is pardoned, we are afraid that he will again flee among the various yi, and bring about troubles and cause calamities. The normal regulations should not limit us. He, together with his family members, should be fettered and sent to his place of banishment." Imperial orders were issued requiring that persons be sent to forward him to the capital, so that he could be sent to his place of banishment.
