text: In the old times a Chui Ang married an Ang's daughter of Wanching. Then the Ang's family of Wanching died out, but there were descendants of the Ang's daughter in Chui. So the Wanching people asked for an Ang from Chui. After arranging that, by this they would not get under (13) the overlordship of the Chui Ang.
