In 1664, three years later, Guo Shichun, who was waiting in Beijing, finally got a chance to be an official. He is also the governor of Chizhou, Anhui Province. As the saying goes, in three years, Guo Shichun, the governor of the Qing Dynasty, got a hundred thousand snowflakes and silver, and he immediately cleaned up his family in the capital. His family and servants were more than 60, and more than a dozen carriages went to the office in a mighty way.
Along the way, Guo Shichun's team was well dressed and full of supplies. The team soon attracted thieves. In the middle of a remote place, Guo Zhifu's motorcade was killed by a group of thieves. Mrs. Guo, who had the baby in her arms, was not killed because of her outstanding appearance. This gang of robbers pushed the motorcade back to the old nest. When sharing the stolen goods, they knew the purpose of Guo Shichun. Look at the new official uniform and the official credentials needed for taking office. The thief leader made a bold decision. Let's go to Chizhou mansion and grab the official silver.
Under the leadership of the leader, the thieves went to Chizhou to take office. After arriving in Chizhou, I first met with my immediate superior, Mr. Daotai, and handed in the official certificate. A good official who has officially started to deal with cases for the people, maybe he is addicted to being an official, and even in a short time, he managed Chizhou in a well-organized way and lived happily. It has been praised by Daotai adults for many times. But the only bad thing to do is that the money and grain collected by Chizhou are not handed over to the higher authorities. The official of Daotai is responsible for the fake magistrate. Why didn't he turn it in on time? The fake magistrate immediately explained that the money and grain is the most important thing, and his subordinates must be personally responsible for escorting the money and grain. But I don't have time to escort many times. I have collected all the money and food that should be handed over this year. I will send them to you in person. I also asked the above officials to come down for inspection, and found that there were stacks of grain and boxes of silver in the granary and Bank of the prefecture magistrate's Yamen, which were placed neatly. This time, Daotai was relieved.
Therefore, the leader of the robber set up his own Prefecture magistrate in peace. He was increasingly supported by the people, and was praised by the people on the street. Before long, the trouble of pretending to be a magistrate came. Knowing that "he" was doing well in Chizhou, the villagers of governor Guo began to have people come to visit him. Robbers usually kill people to solve problems. In this way, the villagers who come to visit governor Guo are warmly welcomed into the mansion, but no one has come out. These people were all cheated into the backyard by the robbers and killed and buried. These villagers' families never came back to see the visitors and began to be suspicious, so they entrusted Mrs. Guo's brother to see what happened.
Mrs. Guo's brother readily agreed, and he had not seen his sister for a long time. When Chizhou arrived, the streets were crowded with people, and there was a prosperous scene. My wife's brother thought that this brother-in-law had some skills. All of a sudden, when someone shouted in the street, governor Guo came, and withdrew to the side of the road. As a result, when the sedan chair passed by, Guo Zhifu, who waved to the people, was not his brother-in-law. Thinking of the disappearance of several villagers some time ago, Mrs. Guo's brother felt that there must be something strange in this matter, and felt that he had to find his sister and ask the reason.
The next day, Mrs. Guo's brother soiled her clothes, picked up two loads of water and pretended to be a poor man living here. When I arrived at the yamen, I said to the officials in the Yamen: I've been living here for thousands of miles, and I don't have a living. Thinking that the Yamen needs a lot of water every day, I can send water to the Yamen for a living. The steward of the house immediately agreed. Mrs. Guo's brother carried water into the inner court and saw her sister, but her sister waved to stop him talking. Just said, tomorrow continue to send water.
The next day, when Mrs. Guo's brother saw her sister again, she sent a secret letter to herself. When she got out of the government office and opened it, she knew the reason. The former magistrate Guo had been killed. Now more than 30 people in the government are thieves. Mrs. Guo's brother immediately took this letter to report the case to Lord Daotai. Lord Daotai read this letter and thought about it carefully. He said that there are too many thieves and it is difficult to catch them rashly. Moreover, thieves are often very alert. If we mobilize our troops, they will run away as soon as they hear the wind. So I thought of a way to find out the money and grain of other counties. I asked several people from the fake magistrate to supervise the county below. The fake magistrate readily agreed to send two people to each county. As a result, every time he went to the county government, the fake magistrate's men were put in prison. Seeing that most of the thieves have been arrested, they summon the fake magistrate to discuss affairs in the Daotai mansion. As soon as they enter the Daotai yamen, the fake magistrate is tied up, and soon after interrogation, they are out of the water. It turns out that these thieves pretended to be prefects because of the money in the vault, and they have already saved 80000 Liang, and they are planning to go far away in the near future. Unexpectedly, things are still exposed.
Why did a robber dare to pretend to be a magistrate in ancient times? It had something to do with the official evidence at that time, because there were no photos at that time, and the official evidence only sketched out the appearance. After the robber got the official evidence, the leader compared the description of the official evidence, and then he dared to take risks. Now with ID card and photos, it's hard to fake others, let alone a magistrate.
