In this year, Jiao-zhi supplied 1,747 bolts of thin silks, 3,000 jin of lacquer, 5,000 jin of sapan-wood, 3,000 kingfisher feathers and 10,000 fans. After it began to supply these products in the 14th year of the reign (1416/17), the amounts supplied fluctuated up and down. This was a record year in terms of what was supplied.
