The Qian-guo Duke Mu Bin, regional commander of Yun-nan, died. Bin was the son of Sheng. Originally he was named (名) Yan, but in the sixth year of the Zheng-tong reign (1441/42), when he inherited the title, the name Bin was conferred upon him. He inherited his father's post and when the Great Army proceeded on the expeditions against Si Ren-fa, Bin participated in the expeditions. At this time, he died in defence duties. Officials were sent to offer official sacrifices, and the relevant offices were instructed to arrange the burial.
