1. When Yen Yuan died, Yen Lu begged the
carriage of the Master to sell and get an outer shell for his son's coffin.
2. The Master said, 'Every one calls his son
his son, whether he has talents or has not talents. There was Li; when he died,
he had a coffin but no outer shell. I would not walk on foot to get a shell for
him, because, having followed in the rear of the great officers, it was not
proper that I should walk on foot.'
