The envoy Mo-zhe-na who had been sent by the country of Melaka, and the envoy Ye-ba-la Mo-di-li-ya and others who had been sent by the country of Sri Lanka, brought memorials and came to Court to offer tribute of horses and local products. A banquet as well as variegated silks, suits of clothing made of silk interwoven with gold thread and other goods, as appropriate, were conferred upon them. It was also ordered that the envoys take Imperial orders and biao-li of variegated silks to confer, on their return, on the kings of their countries and their consorts.
