Proclamations (shiyu  示諭) (j. 1) and judicial sentences (pandu  判牘) (j. 2-6) composed by the author, said to have been an outstanding judge, when he was magistrate  at Taihe  泰和, Xingguo  興國  and Poyang  鄱陽  (Jiangxi). The preface insists that Shen was an exemplar of how  “loyalty and trust” (zhongxin  忠信) translates into “lucid decisions” (mingjue  明決). The 23 roclamations concern subjects like  yamen  security and the magistrate‟s integrity, literati behavior, tax payments, lawsuits, flood control in the polder area around Poyang Lake, and famine relief; they are dated by the year and month  and cover a period from 1843 to 1850. The contents of the 135 judicial “affairs” (shi  事), which consist largely of civilian cases, are indicated by the titles listed in the table of contents. The work was edited and published posthumously. After j. 6 there are two texts of 1853 by one Xia Xie夏燮  on the death of a certain Li Zizhai  李資齋, magistrate of Leping  樂平,  who was massacred with his family by the Taiping together with Shen Yanqing  earlier that same year.
