1 王裔老:
華州下邽縣東南三十餘里。曰延年里,里西南有故蘭若,而無僧居。唐元和八年,翰林學士白居易丁母憂,退居下邽縣。七月。其從祖兄曰皞自華州來訪居易。途出于蘭若前。及門,見婦女十許人,衣黃綾衣,少長雜坐,會語于佛屋下,聲聞于門。皞熱行方渴,將就憩,且求飲。望其從者蕭士清末至。因下馬,繫韁于門柱。舉首,忽不見,自意其退藏于窗闥之間。從之不見,又意其退藏于屋壁之後。從之,又不見。周視其四旁,則堵墻環然無隙缺。覆視其聚談之所。塵埃羃然,無足跡。由是知。知字原空闕。據明鈔本補、。其非人,悸然大異之。上馬疾驅。來告居易。且聞其所言,云云甚多,不能殫記。大抵多云王裔老如此,觀其詞意,若相與數其過者。厥所去居易舍八九里,因同往訪焉。其地果有王裔者,即其里人也。方徙居於蘭若之東北百餘步。葺牆屋,築場藝樹僅畢,明日而入。既入。不浹旬而裔死,不越月而妻死,不踰時而裔之二子二婦及一孫亦死。止餘一子。曰明進,大恐懼,不知所為。意新居不祥,乃撒屋拔樹。夜徙去,遂免。出《白居易集》
