The attendant minister Bu-sha-pa Po-li-shi and others who had been sent by Pan-luo Yue, the king of the country of Champa, presented a memorial and came to Court to offer tribute of rhinoceros horn, elephant tusks and various other local products. A banquet as well as paper money, silks, headwear and belts, suits of clothing made from silk interwoven with gold thread, and other goods were conferred upon them. It was also ordered that Bu-sha-pa Po-li-shi and the others carry Imperial orders as well as biao-li of variegated silks to confer, on their return, upon the king and his consort.
