In the spring, Miss Li Banyue, the prime minister's daughter, visited Mount Hua with her maid Chuncao. They were intoxicated with the spring scenery of Mount Hua. However, it was spoiled when they run into Wu Du, the son of the Minister of Official Personal Affairs, a fop, who attempted to molest Miss Li. A migratory scholar Xue Meiting passed by as it happened. Xue rushed into saving Miss Li and brought down Wu. Xue was arrested. When he was charged in the court of district, Wu's mother who enjoyed an honorary title by imperial mandate intervened into the case and wanted Magistrate Hu Jin immediately to execute Xue. When Maid Chuncao heard this news, she had no time to inform Miss Li. The bright maid rushed into the courtroom, and pointed out that Xue was the son-in-law of Prime Minister Li. For the sake of the prime minister's power, Magistrate Hu sent a letter to the Prime Minister to verify it. When the Prime Minister received the letter, Miss Li came back home with Chuncao. They explained the whole affair to Prime Minister Li and asked him to save Xue. But Prime Minister writes to Magistrate Hu, that contains the order to have Xue executed secretly. The complot letter was seen through by Miss Li. Chuncao changed the letter to admission of Xue as the son-in-law. After reading the letter, Magistrate Hu was overjoyed, and sent Xue to the capital. Xue is widely recognized as the son-in-law of the prime minister. The Emperor heard the affair, and rewarded them a stele to bless the marriage. Prime Minister Li couldn’t defy the Emperor, and accepted the fact.
