Jia-jing: Year 26, Month 12, Day 22
1 Feb 1548
It was commanded that Chen Huang, a male descendant of Chen Fu-zong, a deceased Jiao-zhi native official who had come to allegiance, be sent to the school at Shun-tian Prefecture to study. Fu-zong came to allegiance during the Xuan-de reign (1426-35). For achievements in killing bandits, he was promoted to full battalion commander in the Embroidered-Uniform Guard. Fu-zong had a son named Xian, who in turn had a son named Ru. Ru then had a son named Yi-lin. Each of these generations received a stipend to study. Subsequently, an Imperial command was issued terminating the stipends. Huang, who was the son of Yi-lin, repeatedly cited precedents and submitted a request that he be allowed to study. This was finally approved.
