The Ministry of Revenue memorialized: "In Yun-nan, the silver from fines of corrupt officials and from the mining taxes was originally used for relief needs on the border. Later, because of the rebellion by the Mang chieftain, the silver was temporarily retained and allocated to the army. This arrangement has been in force for over 10 years. Now, the province advises that there is peace. The funds from the two above-mentioned sources should be separately collected and forwarded. Subsequent to the issuing of the Imperial order, unless there are further military actions, there should not be any presumptuous discussion of retention [in Yun-nan]." This was approved.
