It was Imperially commanded that the Javanese envoys be released and sent home. Previously, the envoy A-lie Su-a-na, who had been sent by Wu-tuo-lao-wang-jie (Alt: Wu-yuan-lao-gang-jie), king of the Eastern fan in Java, and A-lie Zhan-bi and others who had been sent by Wu-lao-bo-wu, the king of the Western fan in Java, both presented memorial and offered tribute of local products. It was Imperially commanded that the envoys be detained as their lack of propriety and their sentiments indicated that they were not sincere. At this time, they were released and sent home.
