It was said that during the De Zong time in the Tang Dynasty, Xu Zhongyuan was once the chief of Hefei and since his father moved from Xuancheng to Wangjiang, his family inhabited in Wangjiang. He was famous for his filial piety, and the story that he respected his mother spread widely in the folk. In the first year of De Zong time, his mother Ms Li's left eye was inflamed with tears all through the day and she could not get to sleep with the unbearable pain. Gradually her left eye went blind after the failure of drug treatment from many famous doctors. Soon the right eye suffered the same illness and neither could the doctor treat it. Once on the back way for doctors he heard from two old men that the soup of the children's flesh might cure the mother's disease. With a ray of hope, he came back home and prepared to cut off his flesh. He milled a knife at night and the next morning he took a bath and then cut a flesh from his thigh. His wife cooked the soup made from his flesh. Surprisingly, his mother gradually recovered ever since she drank the soup and therefore she kept her right eye.
