Man Cai-gu (Alt: The man Cai Gu) and others of Meng-zi County in A-mi Subprefecture, Yun-nan, engaged in rebellion and the defence officials pacified them. They captured and executed over 940 persons, took over 960 persons prisoner, seized many cattle, horses and weapons and brought over 3,460 persons to negotiated pacification. Victory was then advised. The Ministry of War requested* that the achievements of the Regional Commander Mu Shao-xun, the Censor Mao Feng-shao, the Administration Vice Commissioner of the Left Meng Ting-ke, the Deputy Commissioner Gao Di, the Assistant Commissioner Jia Qi, the Regional Military Commissioners Fan Tai, Feng Li and Sun Xi, the Prefect Ni Bin and the native official Zi Hui be recorded.

The Emperor approved this and issued orders encouraging and rewarding Shao-xun and Feng-shao with 20 liang of silver and two biao-li of ramie-silk each. Ting-ke and the others were to receive half of these amounts, and the remainder were to be given rewards by the grand defender and grand coordinator. 

 

* The Guang-ben edition notes the wording of the Ministry of War memorial as follows: "...The Ministry of War re-submitted a request, stating: `In this expedition, the achievements of the Regional Commander Mu Shao-xun in commanding the troops and deciding tactics were most outstanding. The Censor Mao Feng-shao put forth the proposal to advance and eliminate the bandits, the Administration Vice Commissioner of the Right Meng Ting-ke, the Deputy Commissioner Gao Di .... the Assistant Commissioner Jia Qi, and the Regional Military Commissioners Fan Tai, Feng Li and Sun Xi all put efforts into leading the troops, transporting grain, supervising, recording and inspecting. The Prefect Ni Bin, the native official Zi Hui and others, a total of 25 persons in the lower ranks put forth great efforts. All should be rewarded.'..."
