The minister Po Kun Gang-xin, who had been sent by the king of the country of Siam (Hu), presented a memorial and offered tribute. His deputy was Zhao Zhan-duo-luo. Previously, when their ships reached Champa, they met great winds and they lost contact with each other. Zhao Zhan Duo-luo arrived at the capital in the eighth month (Alt: 10th month) and presented the goods offered in tribute. On this day, Po Kun Gang-xin arrived and he presented a gold-leaf memorial. It was Imperially commanded that patterned fine silks, silk gauzes and variegated silks interwoven with gold thread, clothing and other goods, as appropriate, be conferred upon the king and the envoys.
