The Fu-jian Grand Coordinator Xu Fu-yuan memorialized: "The son of the head chieftain of Luzon has complained that some of our evil people who had attached themselves to their tribe, had attacked and killed his father, before stealing valuables and fleeing." The Ministry of War re-submitted the memorial and proposed: "We should capture the offenders and punish them in accordance with the law. Further, we should entertain and send back the chieftain's envoy both to strengthen their desire to look towards the Court and also to use the occasion to spy on the situation of the Japanese yi." This was approved by Imperial command.
