Yong-le: Year 10, Month 10, Day 26
30 Nov 1412
The army of the Ying-guo Duke Zhang Fu, regional commander of Jiao-zhi, had previously arrived at Wu River in Tu-huang County, Yi-an Prefecture in order to hunt out and capture the false Junior Guardian Pan Ji-you and others. When the bandit troops heard of this, they all fled and hid. Ji-you also scurried away to Mt. Ke-lei and sent his son Liao to request permission to surrender. Subsequently notices were posted calling for their surrender, and Ji-you and his son, together with the false official Wu Dan and others, a total of 17 (Alt: 70) persons, went to the commander and surrendered. In accordance with Imperial orders, Fu appointed Ji-you as surveillance vice commissioner in the Jiao-zhi Provincial Surveillance Commission to handle affairs in Yi-an Prefecture and the pacification of the troops and the people. Not long after, the false generals, prefects, surveillance officers, military commissioners, bandit-suppression commissioners and such officials, including Chen Min, Ruan Shi-qin, Chen Quan-xu, Chen Quan-min, Chen Li, Ruan Shuang, Ruan Yan and Ruan Diao successively surrendered.
