[fingerprint of Gokula Jaisī Regmī]
Written by Gokula Jaisī Regmī, resident of Madanapura village, Bhīmrī in Pyuthana.
Āge: Of the 4 persons (jiu, lit. "bodies") that, a paramabhaṭṭā deed having been drawn up, I bought for 625 mohara rupaiyās from Godāra Thāpā, a resident of Gejabāṅ, Pyuthana, I [earlier] gave (i.e., sold) the female slave named Pārvatī to Paṇḍita Bāmadeva Upādhyā of Ṭākurā. Now, of this (group of slaves), I have handed over to the aforementioned Paṇḍita Bāmadeva Upādhyā of Ṭākurā my kariyā slaves—the male slave Tane - 1, the female slave Dhanī - 1, and the female slave Gaurī - 1—for 483 mohara rupaiyās and 2 sukās as the price for them. I have written this paramabhaṭṭā deed willingly, without anyone obliging [me] to, and have handed it over [to Bāmadeva], stating: "From today on, any prior commitments (kālphāl3 ) of the aforementioned slaves are yours, and any (former) deceit (on their part toward me) is mine. From today onward I have no claim to these 3 kariyā slaves." In the list (below) are the witnesses to this paramabhaṭṭā.
