Yong-le: Year 15, Month 10, Day 6
14 Nov 1417
In Jiao-zhi, the commercial tax office, Yin-yang School, Buddhist Registry and Daoist Registry in Zhi-ling County, Xin-an Prefecture, as well as the Buddhist Registry in Fu-liang County, Tai-yuan Prefecture, were abolished. This was ordered as the offices had been attached to those in the prefectural centre and their separate existence was no longer required.
