(26.5) Appraisal [of Mǎn 滿, Tián 田, Qiān 牽, Guō 郭]

Appraisal states: Mǎn Chǒng established will stalwart and firm, brave and yet had planning. Tián Yù resided self in purity, planning and strategy enlightened and precise. Qiān Zhāo maintained righteousness strong and ardent, authority and merits prominent and famed. Guō Huái in strategy was elite and detailed, passing down fame in Qín and Yōng. But [Tián] Yù’s rank stopped in a small province, [Qiān] Zhāo ended as a prefecture administrator, not exhaustive in their employment.

評曰:滿寵立志剛毅,勇而有謀。田豫居身清白,規略明練。牽招秉義壯烈,威績顯著。郭淮方策精詳,垂問秦、雍。而豫位止小州,招終於郡守,未盡其用也。
