He heard that the reverend Mr. Mao and Mr. Xue were very capable, andsent his men to invite them to his place, but they two refused.
He inquired about the two men and got news that Mr. Mao hid himselfamong the gamblers, and Mr. Xue hid in an alcohol shop. So he went to lookfor them and at last he got to know them.
Lord Pingyuan was told the news and he commented, "I have heardbefore that Lord Xinling's behaviour is unparalleled in the world, but now Iconsider that his behaviour is stupid enough, and he has all his goods in thewindow."
Lord Xinling said, "Now that Lord Pingyuan looks down upon andsneers at me, I think it is time for me to leave."
Lord Pingyuan knew that he had said wrong words, so he apologized toLord Xinling, and Lord Xinling had a greater reputation.
