Yong-le: Year 11, Month 8, Day 29
23 Sep 1413
The chieftain Dao Bu-da (Alt: Diao Bu-da) and others who had been sent by Han Bin-fa, the Military and Civilian Pacification Superintendent of Mu-bang, came and presented the elephants, horses and other goods which had been captured from the Ava-Burma native official Na-luo-ta. Na-luo-ta had not respected the orders of the Court and had attacked and occupied the territory of Meng-yang. Han Bin-fa requested permission to use yi troops to punish him. The Emperor approved this. Han Bin-fa then sent the chieftain Dao San-meng and others to attack him and they destroyed over 20 cities and stockades in Ava-Burma. Many people were killed or captured. The elephants, horses and other goods which had been captured were, at this time, all presented in the capital.
