The Meng-yang Military and Civilian Pacification Superintendency was re-established and it was commanded that Dao De-meng, the second son of Dao Mu-dan, the deceased native official, be appointed as pacification superintendent. Previously, Dao Mu-dan and his eldest son Si Luan-fa were killed by the Ava-Burma native official Na-luo-ta. Subsequently, the pacification superintendency was abolished. Over 3,000 of the Meng-yang people followed Mu-dan's nephew [Dao?] Yu-bin to reside in Gan-yai on the Jin-sha River. The Court thus commanded that Yu-bin act as temporary pacification superintendent in administering these people. At this time, the pacification superintendency was re-established. Dao De-meng was appointed as pacification superintendent, Yu-bin was transferred to associate administrator of the superintendency and they were ordered to lead their people in returning to their occupations. Further, an Imperial envoy was sent with instructions for Na-luo-ta, ordering him to look to the protection of his own borders and to desist from his crimes of attacking and harassing others.
