Other notes:
A mistake was made in the numbering of the folios of the manuscript and number 221 follows 210 without a break in the story. Number 144 is also missing without a break in the story. The numbering is done in international numerals on the recto pages. The text is a poem written in Javanese tembang macapat verse.
