Chen Jia-xun, a supervising secretary in the Nan-jing Office of Scrutiny for Personnel, submitted a memorial charging both the Zhe-jiang Grand Coordinator Yin Ying-yuan, who was awaiting replacement, and the Fu-jian Grand Coordinator Xu Xue-ju with corruption and tyranny: "It is requested that the Zhe-jiang Grand Coordinator be swiftly removed and replaced at an early date. As for Xu Xue-ju, in the Wu Jian affair, the government troops killed several thousand people, but this was concealed and not reported. As to the campaign against the `red-haired fan', they came in one ship to trade, anchored far off Peng-hu and fired not a single shot. What achievement is there to record? It is requested that these matters be sent to the ministries and the Censorate for deliberation of arrangements." There was no response to the memorial.
