The chief envoy Kun Tie-xie-ti and others who had been sent by the king of the country of Siam, came to Court and offered tribute of local products in gratitude for Imperial grace. Variegated silks, gold and silver belts and other goods, as appropriate, were conferred upon them. It was also ordered that they carry Imperial orders as well as patterned brocades and variegated silks to confer, on their return, upon their king and his consort.
