The envoy Kun Ying-ming-di-lei and others who had been sent by Bo Lue-kun Xi-li You-chi-ya, the king of the country of Siam, came to Court and offered tribute of local products. Rewards in accordance with the precedents were conferred upon them. Also, their request that the goods that had been proportionately taxed from their cargo be returned to them was approved, so that the proceeds could be used to pay for the repair of their ship. The envoys were also given headwear and belts.
