The envoy Zeng Shou-xian and others who had been sent by Zhao Lu-qun Ying-duo-luo-di-la, the king of the country of Siam, offered tribute of horses and local products and sent back the Chinese wanderers (中國流移人). Paper money and silks were conferred upon Shou-xian and the others. The Ministry of Rites was ordered to send the Eunuch Zhang Yuan and others with Imperial orders of encouragement for the king and to confer upon him patterned fine silks and silk gauzes interwoven with gold thread.
