Ruan Zong-qi, an interpreter and usher in the Court of State Ceremonial, advised: "I am a Jiao-zhi person. It is requested that the Ministry of War be instructed to issue a notice calling up the native officials and people from Jiao-zhi who came to allegiance. I will organize them into a military unit and train them and then, with spears and crossbows, we can proceed to kill the bandits." This was approved.
