  1. 欽《與郭淮書》曰:「大將軍昭伯與太傅俱受顧命,登牀把臂,託付天下,此遠近所知。後以勢利,乃絕其祀,及其親黨,皆一時之俊,可為痛心,柰何柰何!公侯恃與大司馬公恩親分著,義貫金石,當此之時,想益毒痛,有不可堪也。王太尉嫌其專朝,潛欲舉兵,事竟不捷,復受誅夷,害及楚王,想甚追恨。太傅旣亡,然其子師繼承父業,肆其虐暴,日月滋甚,放主殺后,殘戮忠良,包藏禍心,遂至篡弒。此可忍也,孰不可忍?欽以名義大故,事君有節,忿憤內發,忘寢與食,無所吝顧也。會毌丘子邦自與父書,騰說公侯,盡事主之義,欲奮白髮,同符太公,惟須東問,影響相應,聞問之日,能不慷慨!是以不顧妻孥之痛,即與毌丘鎮東舉義兵三萬餘人,西趨京師,欲扶持王室,埽除姦逆,企踵西望,不得聲問,魯望高子,不足喻急。夫當仁不讓,況救君之難,度道遠艱,故不果期要耳。然同舟共濟,安危勢同,禍痛已連,非言飾所解,自公侯所明也。共事曹氏,積信魏朝,行道之人,皆所知見。然在朝之士,冒利偷生,烈士所恥,公侯所賤,賈豎所不忍為也,況當塗之士邪?軍屯住項,小人以閏月十六日別進兵,就於樂嘉城討師,師之徒衆尋時崩潰,其所斬截,不復訾原,但當長驅徑至京師,而流言先至,毌丘不復詳之,更謂小人為誤,諸軍便尔瓦解。毌丘還走,追尋釋解,無所及。小人還項,復遇王基等十二軍,追尋毌丘,進兵討之,即時克破,所向全勝,要那後無繼何?孤軍梁昌,進退失所,還據壽春,壽春復走,狼狽躓閡,無復他計,惟當歸命大吳,借兵乞食,繼踵伍員耳。不若僕隷,如何快心,復君之讎,永使曹氏少享血食,此亦大國之所祐念也。想公侯不使程嬰、杵臼擅名於前代,而使大魏獨無鷹揚之士與?今大吳敦崇大義,深見愍悼。然僕於國大分連接,遠同一勢,曰欲俱舉,瓜分中國,不願偏取以為己有。公侯必欲共忍帥胷懷,宜廣大勢,恐秦川之卒不可孤舉。今者之計,宜屈己伸人,託命歸漢,東西俱舉尔,乃可克定師黨耳。深思鄙言,若愚計可從,宜使漢軍克制期要,使六合校考,與周、召同封,以託付兒孫。此亦非小事也,大丈夫寧處其落落,是以遠逞忠心,時望嘉應。」時郭淮已卒,欽未知,故有此書。世語曰:毌丘儉之誅,黨與七百餘人,傳侍御史杜友治獄,惟舉首事十人,餘皆奏散。友字季子,東郡人,仕晉兾州刺史、河南尹。子默,字世玄,歷吏部郎,衞尉。
