    SUMMARY We shall generalize B. S. Clarke and A. R. Barren's analysis of the Bayes method for the FSMX sources. The FSMX source considered here is specified by the set of all states and its parameter value. At first, we show the asymptotic codelengths of individual sequences of the Bayes codes for the FSMX sources. Secondly, we show the asymptotic expected codelengths. The Bayesian posterior density and the maximum likelihood estimator satisfy asymptotic normality for the finite ergodic Markov source, and this is the key of our analysis.
