Yong-le: Year 18, Month 5, Day 10
20 Jun 1420
Imperial orders were sent to the Feng-cheng Marquis Li Bin, regional commander of Jiao-zhi, as follows: "The rebellious bandits Pan Liao, Li Li, Che San and Nong Wen-li have still not been captured and still not been subject to judgement. When will the troops be rested? When will the people see peace? You should put all your efforts into this day and night and expand your strategies so that you can wipe out these bandits at an early date. Thereby, you will not fail to fulfil your commission."
