Zheng-tong: Year 1, Month 8, Day 24
4 Oct 1436
The family property of Xie Jin, the deceased former Jiao-zhi assistant administration commissioner, was returned. During the Yong-le reign (1403-24), Jin was sent to prison where he died. His family property was confiscated and his wife and children were exiled to Liao-dong. When Ren-zong came to the throne, Jin's wife and children were called back. At this time, his son advised of their poverty and difficulties. The Emperor ordered the appropriate office to return their family property.
