It was proclaimed that the officials of all subprefectures, counties and chief's offices in Yun-nan were exempted from coming for audiences at Court. All senior officials of prefectures with public duties to attend to were also exempted. At this time, Yun-nan had suffered repeated years of natural calamities and armies had been raised on several occasions. The defence officials advised of this and accordingly this order was issued.
