The envoy Ba-zhi Chen Wei-da and others who had been sent by Du-ma-ban, the Western king of the country of Java, presented a memorial and offered tribute of local products. At this time, three nearby countries Die-li, Ri-xia-luo-zhi and Jin-mao-li each sent people with local products to accompany the Javanese envoy and come and offer tribute. Clothing made from patterned fine silks was conferred upon all of them.
