36 proclamations, pieces of correspondence, regulations, and records (記) on every kind of administrative topic, composed while the author was prefect of Lianzhou 廉州 and Qiongzhou 瓊州 (Guangdong) during the period 1866-68. Entries focus on such issues as managing the baojia system, suppressing banditry, preventing the sale of women, prohibiting corruption by clerks and runners, and caring for and educating orphans and the poor. The texts reveal an extremely active and enterprising official. Those on Qiongzhou in particular are very rich on local conditions. For a celebratory compilation published after Dai’s departure from Lianzhou, see under Sanlian zengbie lu.
