The envoy Nai Wen-li-luo, who had again been sent by Can-lie Si-ning, the elder sister of the king of the country of Siam (Hu), offered tribute of local products to the Empress. The Minister of Rites Niu Liang informed of this. It was ordered that this be refused, that patterned fine silks and clothing be conferred upon the envoy and that he be sent home.
