It was ordered that Pan-luo Cha-yue, the younger brother of Pan-luo Cha-quan, the former king of Champa, inherit the post and be enfeoffed as the king of the country of Champa. Pan-luo Cha-quan had been carried off by Annam and the seal and tally conferred upon him by the Court had also been lost. His younger brother Pan-luo Cha-yue had temporarily taken on the handling of state affairs and memorialized requesting that he be enfeoffed. He also requested a seal and a tally. The Ministry of Rites requested that he be enfeoffed in accordance with the precedent during the Zheng-tong reign (1436-49) by which the eldest son of the king Mo-he Bi-lai* (apparently an error for Mo-he Bi-gai) was enfeoffed, and that officials be sent to carry out the enfeoffment. The request was approved by Imperial command. Accordingly, Chen Jun, a supervising secretary of the right in the Office of Scrutiny for Works and Li Shan, a Messenger in the Messenger Office were sent to proceed there.
