14 Aug 1603
As peace had been restored in the regions of Jin-chi and Teng-yue in Yun-nan, and the achievements had been assigned a precedence and examined, the Ministry of War submitted a request that Wu Shi-de and others be promoted, rewarded or be allowed to purchase redemption of their punishments as appropriate, and that the officials and housemen who were due for rewards be provided with them at the set reward levels. This was approved.
