- Hu Zhong, Wu li says: “Duke Cao frequently sent intimates to secretly spy on his commanders to see who was entertaining guests with drink and food, and then on some pretext he would kill them. Liu Bei often closed his gate and planted rape-turnips with others. Duke Cao sent someone to spy through the gate. When he had left, Liu Bei said to Zhang Fei and Guan Yu, ‘How could I [simply] be someone who plants vegetables? Duke Cao is sure to be suspicious. We cannot remain any longer.’ That night he opened a rear gate, and with Zhang Fei and the others he left on light horseback. All the clothing that had been bestowed on him he sealed up and left behind. Then he headed for Xiaopei to assemble his troops.”
