The Ministry of Rites memorialized: "The Samudera person Ai-yan has advised that his uncle Song Yun came to the capital to offer tribute to the Court in the first year of the Zheng-tong reign (1436/37). However, he was murdered by the fan person Da-xi and others from the country of Java.' Song Yun's wife Mei-mei-da-wai complained to officials and Da-xi was punished in accordance with the law. At this time, Mei-mei-da-wai, her female attendants (女使人) and so on are still residing in Guang-dong (Alt: Guang-xi) and, as they have no relatives, it is very difficult for them to clothe and feed themselves day by day. They are alone and have no one to depend on. It is requested that the three offices of Guang-dong be instructed to have them sent back to their country.". This was approved.
