1. In reply on the veneration of city, mountain and river gods (taken from the Koutou richao 口鐸日抄, cf. Jap-Sin I, 81).
2. In reply on the veneration of Heaven and earth (taken from the Bianjing lu 辨敬錄 of João Monteiro, 1602–1648).
3. In reply on geomancy (taken from the Da Kewen, cf. Jap-Sin I, 146 and II, 75).
4. In reply on veneration of Guan Gong, the god of war (taken from the Da Kewen).
