The Fu-jian mining taxation Eunuch Director Gao Cai had, on receipt of Imperial orders, sent officers across the sea and they had ascertained that Ji-yi did not produce gold and silver.

It was Imperially commanded that, as Zhang Yi had made wild claims, the Eunuch Gao Cai was, together with the grand coordinator and the regional inspector, to send officers to arrest him and send him to the capital, and that he be subject to investigation together with the Company Commander Yan Ying-long.
