Comment

The 33 entries include both moral advice on behavior of officials and practical recommendations on government. A few entries are drawn directly from Chushi lu (q.v.), and others are clearly inspired by it. For this reason Takigawa (see below) considers that the text must date from the Longqing-Wanli period. The parts not based on Chushi lu appear to be original work.
