Zhang Ying-deng, a supervising secretary in the Office of Scrutiny for War, advised: "...The rebellious bandit Si Ge has banded together with Ava-Burma to engage in rebellion. We have received notices from the instructors-designate in Yong-chang, Teng-yue and such places advising that the crimes of the Ava-Burmese must be punished. Long-chuan is the largest region. To the North it joins Jin-chi/Teng-chong, to the South it connects with Ava-Burma, to the West it adjoins Yi-xi and to the East it borders Mu-bang. We should transfer the Teng-yue Assistant Regional Commander and station him there. Walls should be built, state farms planted, and the local men trained into a militia. This will allow contacts with the various yi and ensure control over the six pacification superintencies.
