The ministers sent by Pan-luo Cha-quan, the king of the country of Champa, presented a gold-leaf memorial and offered tribute of trained elephants and local products. Filigree gold belts, suits of clothing made from silks interwoven with gold thread, variegated silks and other goods, as appropriate, were conferred upon the chief and the deputy envoys. The Ministry of Rites requested that, as the Emperor had just ascended the throne, two pieces of patterned brocade, 10 bolts of ramie-silk and seven bolts each of silk gauzes and fine silk gauzes be given to the envoys to take back to confer, on their return, upon the king of the country and his consort. This was approved.
