Chapter Summary

The Yalu is characteristically turbulent because it rises so far away. According to Tang shu the Yalu (Majasu) River in Korea starts from the Bai Mountain in Manchuria (Malgal). According to Huangyu kao, there are three great rivers in the world: the Yellow River, the Yangzi River and the Yalu River. The silver bars that reached Yanjing with the officials were exchanged for a variety of goods, sometimes making for a profitable transaction, sometimes not. The Manchurian forces captured the Wujingmen Bridge, and then dispersed to their left and right. The Manchurians had exacted a high toll of the Ming army and civilian officials. Censor Zhang Quan was captured by the Manchurian army but refused to submit. A short distance after leaving the Guandi Temple (the God of War Shrine) a white pagoda came into view. This pagoda have eight sides, thirteen floors, and stands 70 kil high.
