Robbing The Convoy of Birthday Gifts

Wu Yong plots with Chao Gai, Gongsun Sheng, Liu Tang and the Ruan brothers to rob the convoy of birthday gifts of the Imperial Tutor Cai Jing. The seven men disguise themselves as date traders and succeed in tricking the soldiers escorting the convoy into drinking drugged wine. Once the escorts are knocked out, the seven men make off with the gifts that are worth a large sum of money. Grand Secretary Liang Shijie, who prepared the gifts for his father-in-law Cai Jing, is furious and he orders the local government to investigate the incident and arrest the robbers.

    Your notions of friendship are new to me; I believe every man is born with his quantum, and he cannot give to one without robbing another. I very well know to whom I would give the first place in my friendship, but they are not in the way, I am condemned to another scene, and therefore I distribute it in pennyworths to those about me, and who displease me least, and should do the same to my fellow prisoners if I were condemned to a jail.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    Pilgrim-manned, the Mayflower in a dream
    Has been her anxious convoy in to shore.
