It was ordered that A-bu Sai-yi-de, the son of Zai-nu-li A-bi-ding, the king of the country of Samudera, inherit the position of king of the country. Previously, the eunuch official Wang Jing-hong was sent to this country on official business (公務) and Zai-nu-li A-bi-ding sent his younger brother Ha-ni Zhe-han and others to come to the capital, offer tribute and present a memorial noting that he was now aged and could not attend to all matters. The Emperor was pleased that Zai-nu-li A-bu-ding had always respected the Court and fulfilled his tribute obligations and thus, as A-bu Sai-yi-de was the heir and appropriate successor to the title of king, this order was issued. Ha-ni Zhe-han and the others were banqueted and rewarded with great munificence.
