You should speedily return to the capital in accordance with my long-standing wish." It was Imperially ordered that the Minister of War Chen Qia, who was assisting with military matters in Jiao-zhi, replace Huang Fu in taking charge of the Jiao-zhi Provincial Administration and Surveillance Commissions, while continuing to assist with military matters.
