Jia-jing: Year 43, Month 11, Day 29
1 Jan 1565
The Deputy Pacification Commissioner (宣撫副使) Li Guang-ben and others, who had been sent by Mo Hong-yi, the due heir to the post of Commander of Annam, to present a memorial and offer local products, arrived at the capital. This was the tribute due for the 27th year of the Jia-jing reign (1548/49). Guang-ben and the others had been in China for over 15 years and over half of their attendants had died. At this time they arrived at the capital and the Emperor praised their respect and submissiveness, and especially conferred upon them a banquet at a level accorded to the envoys from the two countries of Korea and Ryukyu.
