20 Jun 1444
Nan Dian Subprefecture and the Gan-yai Chief's Office in Yun-nan were raised to pacification commissions. The Nan Dian magistrate Dao Luo-ying was appointed as the Nan Dian pacification commissioner, while the assistant magistrate Liu Si-mian was appointed as associate administrator. The Gan-yai Chief Dao Pa-bian was appointed as Gan-yai pacification commissioner, while the deputy Chief Liu Ying was appointed as associate administrator. Previously, the Jing-yuan Earl Wang Ji, supreme commander of Yun-nan military affairs, had memorialized that it was appropriate to establish pacification commissions in Nan Dian and Gan-yai in order to soothe and pacify the yi people, and that as Dao Luo-ying and so on had repeatedly accompanied the expeditions to eliminate bandits, it was appropriate that they be promoted to posts. This order was accordingly issued.
