The Hua-jia, Ying-wu, Lu-de, Fa-ju and Gao-lai postal relay stations under the Yun-nan Provincial Administration Commission, were abolished. Previously, Ma-pai-yi-xi (Alt: Ma-pai and Yi-xi) and others had advised: "During the Hong-wu reign (1368-98), these postal relay stations had been abolished, but in the early years of the Yong-le reign (1403-24), they were re-established. They are located in isolated areas among the mountains and rivers, where envoys and travellers do not go." The matter was passed to the Auxiliary Ministry of War which requested that the Yun-nan Provincial Administration Commission be ordered to report the facts. At this time, it advised and the stations were abolished.
