The envoy Nai Si-li Chai-la-shi-xi-ti, who had been sent by the country of Siam (Hu), presented a gold-leaf memorial and offered local products as tribute. It was Imperially commanded that eight bolts each of silk gauzes and patterned fine silks interwoven with gold thread be conferred upon the king, and that four bolts each of fine silks and silk gauzes, clothing, boots and socks be conferred upon the envoy. The interpreter and the subordinates were also given rewards. At this time, the king of the country of Siam Can-lie Zhao Pi-ya had become incompetent and unable to rule. The people of the country thus promoted his paternal uncle Can-lie Bao Pi-ya Si-li Duo-luo-lu to manage the affairs of state. This memorial was presented to advise of this.
