This paramabhaṭṭā deed validates the sale of a nine-year-old slave girl named Jivī at Khairā Village in Pyuthana. The sellers are 49-year-old Timā Jaisinīī and her 17-year-old son Nilakaṃṭha Jaisi. The buyer is Ātmārām Upādhyāya, in the document called a devara (i.e., husband's younger brother), seemingly of Timā. The slave, whose owners found her too expensive to keep, was sold for 221 mohararupaiyās. There are five witnesses to the deed: Dīnānātha Upādhyā, Lokanātha Upādhyā, Ḍhuṃnnu Upādhyā, Narmadā Upādhyānii and Bhavānīśaṅkara Śarmā. Their signatures and names are in the left margin. This deed was written in the house of Ḍhuṃnnu Upādhyā. It is dated Sunday, the 2nd solar day of the Vikrama era year 1977 (1921 CE).
