[Mo] Hong-yi, the son of Mo Fu-hai, the deceased Commander of Annam, requested permission to inherit the fief and to fulfil tribute obligations in accordance with the precedents. Officials advised of this. The Ministry of Rites noted: "Whether or not Hong-yi should inherit the fief has not yet been clarified by the joint investigation. The report should be awaited before permission is given." This was approved.
