The Emperor spoke to the Secretariat officials, saying: "Last year in Autumn, the envoy Yang Bao Mo-he-ba-di Yue-wen-dan, who had been sent by the king of Champa, came and offered tribute. Patterned fine silks and silk gauzes were conferred in response. However, the king's achievements in capturing bandits were not rewarded. Recently, his envoy left to return home. You should send a person to follow him and to confer gifts upon him." Thus, the Courier Jin Xuan was sent with presents of the finest wine and 24 bolts of patterned fine silks and silk gauzes interwoven with gold thread, to rush to Guang-zhou and give these to the envoy Yang Bao Mo-he-ba-di Yue-wen-dan. The envoy was, on his return home, to confer them on the king.
