Imperial orders were sent to: Dao Ba-xian, the pacification superintendent of the Che-li Military and Civilian Pacification Superintendency; Zhao Meng-lu, the pacification superintendent of the Ba-bai/Da-dian Military and Civilian Pacification Superintendency; and Dao Ban-yang, the pacification superintendent of the Laos Military and Civilian Pacification Superintendency. The orders read: "You have for generations lived on the Southern border and been loyal and respectful to the Court. Stipulations have already been set down in respect of your bringing local products to the Court as tribute. Now you have memorialized requesting that the Court send officials to take orders to your areas to expedite and supervise matters. You have been appointed to posts to govern the regions and to make overall arrangements. How can you shirk your tasks! You are to respect and implement my orders and not be remiss in this."
