Ye Ye was stunned for a moment, not understanding what was going on.
Seeing that the master was still confused, the chief steward quickly reminded the master, saying that Cui Zhubo from the county made a special trip to Zhuangzi to talk about the debt a half month ago.
After this reminder, Ye Ye finally understood, his face darkened immediately, and he said angrily, “Could it be that Cui Youjiu took the wrong medicine and charged so much money from my Ye family, why did he send someone to my Ye family? Pay off!”
The second steward, Song San, saw that the master was very angry, and hurriedly persuaded: “Don’t be angry, master, let’s go and see, if it is from the county, maybe Cui Zhubo sent it here to walk through the scene, and then send some money to call them Just go back.”
Hearing this, Master Ye was relieved. He lifted his foot and walked towards the gate, asking the chief steward as he walked, “How many people are here, and who brought them from the third shift and the sixth room?”
In Ye Ye’s mouth, the “three classes and six rooms” refers to the three classes of Zao, Zhuang, and Kuai in the county, all of whom are yamen servants. The six rooms refer to the offices of officials, households, rituals, soldiers, punishments, and workers. The affairs of a county, arresting robbers and arresting robbers, recruiting people and repairing workers, collecting grain and paying taxes, etc., are all done by these three classes and six rooms. Usually, the third class and the sixth room are all locals, and only the county magistrate, the county chief, and the main board are transferred from other places. It is precisely because of this that these three classes and six rooms have almost become the private plots of the local gentry.
Among the big households in Kunshan County, which family does not have children and nephews working in the third shift and sixth room? It is said that the yamen are made of iron, and the officials are running water, but the officials change one after another, but the people in the third shift and the sixth room have never changed, even if they die, they will be replaced by their sons and nephews. It can be said that the third class and the sixth room have completely become hereditary land, and outsiders cannot easily enter. When encountering a county with a strong gentry clan, the people brought by the magistrate may not be able to fit in.
Ye Ye asked who led the team from the third class and the sixth room. Naturally, he had to know the details of the other party, and it would be much easier to dismiss them later.
The chief steward shook his head and said, “None of the dozen or so people who came here are from this county, and none of the third class and sixth room came.”
“Not from this county?…Why didn’t the county send someone here?”
Master Ye stopped and was very puzzled about this matter. He frowned and instructed Song San: “Come to the 30 taels of silver in the account room. No matter where it came from, since you have arrived at my Yejiazhuang, you will always be You have to send some money away. Well, as the old saying goes, the king of **** is easy to meet, and the little devils are difficult to deal with. These little devils may come to my Yejiazhuang to fight the autumn wind by clearing their names, or else there will be no one in the county. come.”
“Hey, little one, let’s go.”
Song San responded with a sound, and turned around to look for the accountant to pay for the money. He didn’t take two steps, and after hearing the master call him, he hesitated before saying: “No, thirty taels are a little short, and the other party has come here for more than ten. Number one, we can’t be lighthearted, I think… it’s still fifty taels, you go now, hurry up!”
Song San hurriedly nodded in response, and then ran back. Here, Master Ye glanced at the front yard, took a deep breath, took a closer look at his clothes, and brushed off the dust on his trousers. Just went to the front yard.
As soon as I arrived at the door, I saw a dozen tall horses parked outside the door, and all standing in front of the horses were red-clothed soldiers with knives.
Master Ye gave a “squeak” and looked at the chief steward subconsciously. His eyes were full of accusations. It was obvious that the chief steward didn’t speak clearly just now. He only thought it was a sergeant, not an officer or soldier. It should be noted that the officers and soldiers cannot be regarded as the same. The officers are authentic brats, and it is easy to get rid of them if they want money, but the soldiers are different. They are much more ruthless than the officers.
When the army men outside saw the Yejiazhuang people coming, the leader of the small flag officer immediately stepped forward a few steps, stared at Master Ye and asked, “Are you Ye Tiancheng?”
Ye Ye was still stunned, but the chief steward gently nudged him before he came to his senses, and nodded hurriedly: “This old man is Ye Tiancheng.” After a pause, he asked a little uneasily, “I don’t know why Jun Ye came to Bizhuang. thing?”
Ye Tiancheng is famous for his fame, so he doesn’t need to be so humble, but what came here was soldiers, and the Taiping army massacred the city in Nanjing is well known to the south of the Yangtze River, and they beat the Manchu emperor to flee in embarrassment. too scary. Even Kunshan County panicked when he saw the Taiping Army, not to mention Ye Tiancheng, an old man, so he had to be respectful. There is a saying that you don’t reach out and don’t hit the smiling face, no matter what your soldiers do in Yejiazhuang, the Ye family is always polite.
“We are members of the debt clearing department of Kunshan County. We have come to your house to clear the debt on the order of the superior. This book is the debt bill of your Ye family since the first year of Chongzhen. You have to look carefully. If it is correct, please make it up according to the bill. Pay the money and food. I can go back to pay the business after I wait.”
After that Xiaoqi said this stiffly, he handed an account book to Ye Ye.
“What, starting from the first year of Chongzhen?”
Mr. Ye’s scalp is numb, and the words in the first year of Chongzhen only made his legs and feet tremble. This is really according to this list~www.mtlnovel.com~ That is a debt of grain and tax for more than 30 years, this is not to be His Ye family’s life! It doesn’t work that way!
The little flag officer stared at Ye Ye and looked up and down, his eyes were very bad, and there was a sneer at the corner of his mouth, which made Ye Ye feel even more afraid, and he didn’t dare to say anything. Dare to lift it up, it looks like a prisoner awaiting trial in the lobby.
From time to time, tenants who came to pay the rent came in and set out. These tenants were much stronger than Ye Ye, and they gathered in the distance to look here curiously.
How can this be good, if it doesn’t work, we have to find someone to save the Ye family!
This group of soldiers asked the Ye family to make up the 30-year tax debt. It seemed that there was no room for accommodation. Ye Ye was anxious. He couldn’t help thinking that the magistrate always respected himself, and every time he said “Master Ye” “Yeah, I give him a lot of good on weekdays, but now the Huang family is in trouble, he can’t just stand by and watch? And Cui Zhubo, he gives him a lot of good on weekdays, so they won’t stand up and help the Ye family. One, how long?
Thinking of this, Ye Ye secretly glanced back from the corner of his eye, but he was looking for Song San who was going to get the silver. Looking at the place, Song San hid by the door and looked at himself. Intentionally told Song San to hurry into the city to ask the magistrate to help him, but he couldn’t speak. He was really anxious, like an ant on a hot pot, circling round and round.
