Dao Pa-nong who had been sent with others by his younger brother Dao Sai, a junior son of Dao Xian-da, the deceased pacification superintendent of Che-li, came to the Court to offer tribute of elephants, horses and gold and silver utensils. Formerly, the Court had sent the eunuch Hong Zai-sheng to take Imperial orders and to go and confer upon Dao Xian-da brocaded fine silks and other goods. When the envoy arrived, Dao Xian-da had already died and his eldest son Dao Gen-meng had established himself as ruler. He was arrogant and contemptuous, wild and obstinate and he lost the hearts of the people. Not long after, he died of illness. The people then pushed forward Dao Sai to temporarily handle affairs. At this time, he sent Dao Pa-nong and others to express gratitude for the grace extended to his father and to request permission to inherit his post. This was approved.
