Although he held a high post, commanding a big army, and had rendered outstanding service in defending the county, he was not only polite and amiable, but also shared weal and woe with the soldiers. Whenever gifts were bestowed to him by the imperial government, he always distributed the gifts to his officers and soldiers.
