among the several sharers, the allotment of the jumma falls upon each at 13 rupees 1 anna and 6 pie per beega. The general superintendance of the ryutee cultivation rests with the Suddur malgoozars, but the profit and loss upon the collections therefrom, is to be distributed amongst the sharers according to the extent of each party's possession. In case of balance, so much of the right of the defaulting proprietor will be sold by public auction as will satisfy the arrear; or if the law will not admit of this arrangement the puttee shall be transferred to the oldest proprietor whoever he may be, who is not bound to restore it till his expenses and interest at 12 per cent. have been fully reimbursed.

3d.—The rates of the hereditary cultivators are fixed and registered. Should a tenant at will” cultivate the lands of any sharer, all rates whether for grain or money will be fixed at the commencement of the year with reference to the quality of the soil, and settled by written agreement. No unauthorized exactions whatever shall be made. In case of any contemplated change in the rates, previous notice thereof will be given to the tahseel office.

4th.-The mulbah of the village is defrayed at the putwaree's office. At the close of the year the collections are made on that account by a per centage on the portions of the jumma payable by each sharer. Should any ryot become insolvent or desert, his liabilities to Government fall on the whole body of proprietors who have unanimously consented to this arrangement.

5th.-This village is divided into 4 thokes or portions, and their lands are entirely separate. All the trees are the property of the sharers on whose land they grow, and it is not usual to sell them.

6th.-The putwaree's dues are 4 of a seer in every maund. The chokeedar receives annually 10 kutcha seers , of grain from each cultivator. We will not interfere with the lakhiraj lands. We will obey all orders of the police, and we hold ourselves responsible for the repair of the roads as well as for the payment of fines, independent of the Government Jumma.

7th.-We will adhere to the ancient usage of allowing the lumberdar's son to succeed to his father's office. The amount of our several contributions is stated at the foot of the engagement, to which we all of us in the presence of witnesses voluntarily subscribe our names.

It is to be noted that we have recorded below our old village private measurement; but the putwaree has registered the corresponding fields according to the khusrah, and his papers can be appealed to at any time should any necessity for identification ever arise.
