Li Qi, vice minister in the Auxiliary Ministry of Rites, and Luo Ru-jing, vice minister in the Auxiliary Ministry of Works, memorialized: "The Cheng-shan Marquis Wang Tong has, without awaiting the Court's orders, taken it upon himself to lead the government troops in abandoning the city and returning. When we arrived at Nan-ning, we encountered him. Tong made great efforts to stop us and wanted us to wait and memorialize a request. We did not dare accord with his wishes and have already sped to Long Subprefecture, where we are awaiting the Jiao people to receive us."
