As the Annam Commander Li Wei-xin had died, the attendant minister Ruan Shi-biao (Alt: Ruan Biao) and others, a total of 42 persons, who had been sent by [Li] Wei-qi, the eldest son of Li Wei-xin's primary wife, arrived at the capital and presented the two batches of tribute due for the 39th year (1611/12) and the 42nd year (1614/15) of the Wan-li reign. They were rewarded in accordance with the precedents. It was ordered that interpreters escort them to Zhen-nan Pass in Guang-xi, where they would cross the border.
