A collection of documents drafted by the author for a variety of officials during his long career as a legal muyou. Some of the colophons that make up the first part of j. 1 show that he had already published several collections of gongdu arranged by localities, or in one instance (a collection titled Zuozhi zazu 佐治雜俎) assembling documents drafted in the service of several officials. The rest of j. 1 includes other prefs. or accounts (some written for other people) and 11 reports written for several officials, dealing principally with military operations and defense. As in the rest of the work, each piece is followed by the indication of the official post for which it was drafted (e.g., “Longshan county,” “Xiangyang circuit,” and so forth), without the name of the particular official. The documents consist mostly of letters to superiors (稟) (j. 2), proclamations (告示) (j. 3), and answers to requests (批) (j. 4). They deal with all the aspects of local administration, but there is much emphasis on local defense, militia (團練), and the like.
