XII. Galiba-de Kovaroha-ye Diha
Greenman-to Charter-of Part

Galiba hetiba-fe-ye tiniba Pitibada-deke se kuvaroha
Greenman freemen's headman Hotprince-for this charter (sic)
ko fufe hetiba-fe veba-fe-ye hana bo-mi
gives all freemen their land taking...

NOTE:  This is apparently a fragment of a charter (presumably by Pitibada)
to  Greenman and the Hetiha rebels, probably recognizing their position in
return for their aid in ransoming him from Hemana (Jasas/Desert).
Kuvaroha is an error for Kovaroha, meaning charter. Kuvaroha actually means
song.

Here follows Item 13, which I have also included in the separate
Sehahuzu (Yawalira/Blackwind) collection. 13 is the last item in the
Hetiba-fe-ye Diha-fe (Freemen'sFragments) collection.After printing this series, I
intend to print the Sehahuzu collection.

Note the last word (wigo) is the past form of the verb go (eat) which we
discussed on the list some time ago.
