Jing-tai: Year 5, Month 3, Day 29
26 Apr 1454
The Ava-Burma Pacification Superintendent Bu-la-lang Ma-ha Sheng-yi-su-la had previously captured the bandit son Si Ji-fa, but had long been unwilling to send him to the Court. At this time, he made representations seeking his former territory. The Assistant Regional Commander of the Left Hu Zhi and others sent persons to advise him that Yin-jia and other areas were to be given to him, and thus he sent Si Ji-fa, his wife and children, a total of six persons to the Jin-sha River Village. Zhi then caged them and sent them off to the capital. The Nan-ning Earl Mao Fu-shou and others advised of this. Imperial orders were conferred, rewarding and instructing Fu-shou and so on. Two biao-li of ramie-silk and 10 liang of silver were conferred upon each of them. Two bolts of thin silk and two of cotton cloth were conferred upon each of the interpreters and government troops.
