The Minister of War and concurrently censor-in-chief of the right in the Censorate Mao Bo-wen, who had been engaged in the expedition to punish Annam, submitted a memorial requesting to be allowed to relinquish his Censorate duties. The Emperor said: "You minister are of great abilities and incisive counsel... Recently, the generals were ordered to the Southern borders. The man frontiers were pacified and I was pleased. You are disciplined and of good judgement, and that is why you were commissioned. You are not permitted to give up your duties."
