Jing-tai: Year 3, Month 5, Day 6
24 May 1452
Dao Ba-xian, the native-official pacification superintendent of the Che-li Military and Civilian Pacification Superintendency in Yun-nan, was exempted from payment of all gold due in lieu of labour for all years prior to the first year of the Jing-tai reign (1450/51). This was ordered as, during the expedition against Lu-chuan, he had deployed yi troops, supplied grain and thereby assisted the expedition.
