Imperial orders were sent to the Commissioner-in-chief Wu Liang: "Censors and other officials were previously ordered to select crack government troops from Hu-guang and Gui-zhou. I also sent regional commissioners to command and train them and await deployment. Now I am especially ordering you to lead them in proceeding to Yun-nan for the expedition to eliminate the rebellious bandits of Lu-chuan. The officials in those places are to provide paper money for rewards."
