Shen Jing-jie, the grand coordinator of Yun-nan, memorialized: "The province of Yun-nan lies in the South-west and Li-jiang lies even further in the North-western corner of Yun-nan. It borders the fan and Tatar and there have been calamities there for repeated years. Mu Zeng, the native official of this prefecture, and his son fought bravely. They took 52 heads of "Yellow-hair Tatars" (黃毛達子), brought over 1,000 men to surrender, captured Bu-hua Village and Lu-tai Stockade, and settled there the persons who had surrendered. They have agreed to provide yaks and 81-plus liang of silver annually as li tax and provide 2,200 bang of black barley. This has been memorialized and entered as a quota. It is requested that it be considered conferring the robes of an official of the third rank upon the prefect to reward his efforts." The ministry re-submitted the memorial and it was approved.
