I know there were people in the farm. They could never cultivate the land.
You know a vast deal. You don't pay more than half the rent that was paid by the former tenant.
How many bighas of land was this farm, Sir?
You pretend not to know how many bighas your land is. What! do you pay rent without knowing that?
I have heard, that all the former land does not now belong to it.
Where did you hear, that formerly there was a quantity of land which is not now in the farm?
I have heard, Sir, that a bruhmutra was given out of this land, and that the river has carried some away.
When was land given to brahmuns out of that farm?
Sir, there is the tally of your estate. You may know all by looking into that.
Bring your lease. I will see how much land is written in that.
I will, Sir. If that is examined I shall not be destroyed.
Take a peon, and go fetch the lease.
Why should I take a peon? I won't run away.
What assurance have I about you? Give a security and go.
Sir, who should I give for security. I see no one of my town's folks.
There are many of your town's people here. Mention and produce one.
Don't go on that lock again, Sir. I will come from home immediately.
