Xian Peng, the native-official pacification officer of the Lu-jiang Pacification Office in Yun-nan, occupied 38 villages and stockades of his nephew [Xian] Yan. Yan laid plaint to officials several times, but to no avail. Subsequently, Peng assembled yi troops and proceeded to Yan's stockade, where they set fires and engaged in killing and looting. Yan's mother, children, primary and secondary wives and other yi men and women, a total of over 80 persons, were killed. Peng then made his base there and fortified his position. The Yun-nan grand defender and grand coordinator sent troops, who captured him through enticement. The details were then memorialized. Peng died soon after in prison. It was ordered that his corpse be beheaded, that the head be exposed publicly, and that his son [Xian] Zhao and their gang members be executed.
