The Minister of War Chen Qia, who was in charge of the Jiao-zhi Provincial Administration Commission, having completed nine years in his post, was due to go to the capital for service assessment. The Ministry of Personnel advised of this. The Emperor said: "Qia is a senior minister who guards a region. How can we lightly consider moving him!" It was ordered that he be treated in accordance with the precedent for Huang Fu and that he was exempted from coming to the capital.
