Yong-le: Year 7, Month 8, Day 25
3 Oct 1409
On this day, the armies of the Ying-guo Duke Zhang Fu, regional commander of Jiao-zhi, and others reached Tai-ping Bridge on the Lu-du River, but the bandit follower Deng Jing-yi had previously left the encampment and fled. Subsequently, those persons who had been avoiding the bandits were instructed to return to their occupations. Thus, the prefectures of Jiao-zhou, Bei River, Liang River, Xin-an, Jian-chang and Zhen-man, as well as the guards and battalions of Zhen-yi, Chang River and Shi Bridge were all pacified.
