Excerpt from Religious Intercourse Between Ceylon and Siam in the Eighteenth Century, Vol. 18: An Account of King Kirti Sri's Embassy to Siam in Saka 1672 (1750 A. D.), Translated From the Singhalese

The Embassy which was sent from Cevlon to Siam in the 18th Century in the reign of the King Kirti Srirajasih with a view of inviting priests from Siam to inaugurate an ordination service has formed the subject of accounts written in Singhalese and Siamese.

The account here published is an exact reprint from the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society Ceylon Branch, Vol. XVIII. of the translation made by P. E. Pieris of the "account of King Kirti Sri's embassy to Siam in Saka 1672 (1750 A.D.)"

Some obvious mistakes in the notes have been corrected, and it may be mentioned that "Muang Nolak Van" mentioned on page 12 is a Singhalese misreading of the Siamese "Talat Khvan" the present Nonthaburi.

A translation of the account of the embassy known under the title of "Syamopadasamvata" has been received through the courtesy of Mr. W. A. G. Tilleke, and it will shortly be issued.

The Siamese accounts mentioned in the Journal Asiatique Xe Série, Vol. VIII. and in the Journal of the Siam Society, Vol. IV, will likewise be published.
