Yong-le: Year 4, Month 5, Day 13
30 May 1406
The Guang-xi Provincial Administration Commissioner of the Left Chu Yong and the Administration Vice Commissioner of the Left Su Gong-ze were re-instated in their official posts. Formerly, these two persons had been involved in offences and Yong had been demoted to assistant administration commissioner of the left, while Gong-ze had been demoted to vice director in the Ministry of Revenue. At this time, as troops were to be employed in Annam, many supplies were to pass through Guang-xi. Some advisers had noted that Yong and so on were capable administrators and it was thus they were restored to their former posts.
