Hong-wu: Year 20, Month 11, Day 22
1 Jan 1388
The Emperor, noting that the envoy Xin-jia-duo from the country of Champa, who had offered tribute of elephants, and his fan troops lacked clothing to ward off the cold, ordered that a cotton quilt and a set of winter clothing be conferred upon each of them. When Xin-jia-duo and the others were returning to Guang-dong, the Emperor sent an Imperial commissioner to provide them with a banquet. Further, travelling expenses of 20 ding of paper money were conferred upon each person with half of that amount being given to each soldier.
