The related lower-left corner of the page is enlarged

so that you can read the relevant paragraph

Unfortunately, there is no written documentation of

kept in the Hué church archives, which were

destroyed during two local wars:

in 1833, under King Minh Mang,

and in 1861 in the reign of King Tuduc.
