The regional commander and Qian-guo Duke Mu Sheng and the Yun-nan Regional Military Commission, Provincial Administration Commission and Provincial Surveillance Commission memorialized: "On receiving orders, we sent a person to pacify (招撫) Dao Nong, the Che-li Pacification Superintendent. His mother advised that during the Yong-le reign (1403-24), the Assignee Liu Heng had been sent by the administration commission to collect gold in lieu of labour. Heng deceitfully took the gold and silver and said that they had been exempted from the following year's levy. However, the commission then sent the assignee Hong Yi to collect the levy. The man people suspected that Dao Nong had cheated them and, resenting this, forced him to flee. Nong fled into Laos, but subsequently when he returned to his territory, he was killed. He did not leave his land to submit to others and nor did he engage in feuding and killing with Dao Shuang-meng. Now Dao Shuang-meng is also dead. The Messenger Dong Ying and the officials sent by the three offices have now soothed the area and it is at peace. These facts are hereby advised." When the Emperor was informed, he ordered the judicial offices to seize Heng and punish him.
