Wan-li: Year 38, Month 8, Day 30
16 Oct 1610
The Ministry of War re-submitted its deliberations: "In respect of the various yi who drifted with the sea winds to the territory of Fu-jian, Yi-xie-wan and so on from Luzon and Ba-xiang and so on from the Western fan should be sent to Xiang-shan and be allowed to stay there or leave. The Korean persons Yi-san-bie and so on should be settled in the Rou-yuan Relay Station so as to demonstrate the Court's concern and pity. Da-lang and the others, eight in number, are actually Japanese (倭種). We cannot really let them go free and return home. We should have the grand coordinator's office place them in the military front lines where they should be subject to strict control. If they are double-hearted and flee, they should be subject to military law." The Emperor approved this.
