An extremely interesting collection of 113 lucidly written judicial sentences, introduced by “We found that…” (審得), by a prefect appointed to Henan 河南 prefecture (i.e., Luoyang) in 1829 after more than a decade at the Hanlin Academy, and going through late 1832. The author is said to have acquired much prestige as a judge. Each “affair” (事) is given a caption indicating its nature and is dated with precision; the titles are listed in the mulu. The entries are chronologically arranged and carefully punctuated. About 30 cases deal with civil affairs like property and inheritance, marriage, indebtedness, etc., the rest being criminal cases.
