Hello, everyone. I'm a editor. Speaking of Wu Yong, you must have heard about it.
In the era of great administration, a small county magistrate of Qipin presented Cixi with three bowls of rice porridge due to a chance, and Cixi promoted him to three levels. Wu Yong was the "lucky" person.
Wu Yong was born in 1865 in Huzhou, Zhejiang Province. In 1887, upon the recommendation of Guo Songtao, 22-year-old Wu Yong came to teach at the house of Zeng Jize, the household minister. Due to his diligence, Zeng Jize had a good impression on him and married his second daughter Zeng Guangzhen to him. Zeng Jize's eldest daughter is Zeng Guangxuan. She married Li Jingfu, the fourth son of Li Hezhang. In this way, Wu Yong and Li Hezhang became relatives, and Li Hezhang was the younger brother of the Minister of Beiyang. As a result of this relationship, Wu Yongjin Li Hongzhang's shogunate. In 1897, after Li Hongzhang's recommendation, Wu Yong became Zhili (now Hebei) county magistrate of Huailai County.
On August 14, 1900, Beijing was attacked. They had to take off their clothes, comb their hair in a bun, disguise themselves as old village women, and escape to the West with Wang Wenshao, holding them under their arms, sandwiched among the refugees. Along the way, there are empty houses and ruins everywhere, white bones everywhere, and people are hard to see. But Cixi and other people had to stop when they fled to Jiming Posthouse in Huailai County because they were in a hurry and didn't bring any food, coupled with the turbulence of the carriage.
At this time, Huailai Zhixian Wu Yong got the news and hurried to Jiming Posthouse to welcome him. Wu yongben wanted to have a big dinner for Cixi and other people, but he found Jiming Posthouse and only got some millet, so he quickly cooked a big pot of millet porridge. After Xiaomi porridge is cooked, Wu Yong personally brings a bowl to Cixi.
The first bowl of porridge, Cixi "Gulu" a drink, hungry, look a bit embarrassed. The second bowl of porridge, Cixi again "Gulu" a drink. When she drank the third bowl, Cixi came slowly, wiped her mouth, and asked Wu Yong, "all the local officials have fled, why are you still here?" Wu Yong replied, "eat the money of the king, and live and die together with his duties."
After hearing this, Cixi was very happy and said, "you are worthy of my loyalty in the Qing Dynasty. You are loyal and responsible. Then you will serve as the food and Beverage Association of Qianlu. Go west with me."
In this way, Wu Yongxian's three bowls of rice porridge were changed into Empress Dowager Cixi's favorite letter. His official position was promoted to three levels, from Qipin county magistrate to the Qianlu Grain Bureau of Siping.
Originally, with the appreciation of Cixi, Wu Yong could continue to rise, but later he did not move forward. Why? First, Li Hongzhang, Wu Yong's backer, died the next year; second, Wu Yong offended Cen Chunxuan. It turns out that Wu Yong, when he was in charge of Qianlu grain and Taiwan Council, and Cen Chunxuan, the supervisor of Qianlu grain and Taiwan Council, who also had great contributions to the rescue, jostled with each other, thus offending Cen Chunxuan. After returning to Beijing, Cixi still preferred Cen Chunxuan more, so she put Wu Yongwai in Xi'an and became a Daotai of four grades. Before long, he was sent to Leiqiong road in Guangdong Province, which made his career more gloomy. However, when the road was narrow, he moved back to Beijing, and was promoted to Shaanxi governor, then transferred to Shanxi governor and then governor of Guangdong and Guangxi. Wu Yong is still under the jurisdiction of Cen Chunxuan, and it is always difficult to do anything.
After the founding of China in 1912, Wu Yong served as an emissary of Shandong, and as secretary of state in 1927 until he died in 1936.
