The envoy Gao Nai-sheng from the country of Java memorialized: "I was sent by the king of my country to offer tribute of local products. My ship was tossed about by the winds and suffered damage. Now I am willing to provide the materials, but request that the relevant office be ordered to provide artisans to repair the ship so that I can return to my country." This was approved.
