Ma-na-re-jia-na-nai, the king of the country of Bo-ni, died of illness in the Interpreters Institute. The Emperor suspended the Court for three days and sent an official to offer sacrifices for him and to provide silken fabrics as a contribution for the funeral. The Empress and the Imperial princes all sent items for the sacrifices. The Ministry of Works was ordered to prepare inner and outer coffins and funeral accoutrements. The king was buried outside the An-de Gate and a tablet and grave avenue were erected. South-western yi subject to China were sought out to guard the grave. A temple was erected at the grave and it was ordered that the authorities sacrifice a sheep there each Spring and Autumn. In addition, Imperial orders of soothing and comfort were conferred upon the king's son.
