Ceremonial insignia, a throne, a water pot and a water bowl all made of silver, a parasol, and a fan, both made of white silk gauze and two "saddled horses" plated in gold were conferred upon the king of the country of Bo-ni. In addition, 10 suits of clothing made of patterned fine silks, silk gauzes, damasks and thin silks, all interwoven with gold thread were conferred upon him. Rewards, as appropriate, were conferred upon the king's consort, younger brothers, younger sisters, sons and daughters as well as his attendant ministers. The clothing for the king and all his subordinates was made like Chinese clothing, while the clothing for the women was made in their customary style.
