The Grand Secretary Zhang Si-wei and others advised: "Today, we have received the memorial from the Ministry of Revenue requiring that 200,000 liang of mining tax silver which is stored in the Yun-nan treasury be sent to the capital. We note that this province is 10,000 li in the distance and that, recently, the Ava-Burma bandit Mang Ying-li has acted violently. The rebellious fugitives Yue Feng (Alt: Yue Yang) of Lu-chuan and Han Qian of Mu-bang have colluded with and assisted him, spied on Teng-yue and Yong-chang, and engaged in great disturbances. The grand defender and grand coordinator are deploying Han and native government troops. The funds necessary to purchase grain and fodder for the army will be huge. Thus it is proposed that the silver be left there to assist in alleviating the emergency." This was approved.
