Sewu sangang atus kang lumaris, sanga likur wiwitnya sinurat saking remen panedhake, kaptyanira kang mangun, met supangat ingkang supadi,... ukara myang tembung, kelangkung mangresi manah, janma papa ingkang sudi amastani, Raden Gebayan Jayeng Wirana.
Other notes:
On the empty page at the start is written in pencil, Damar Wulan. The numbering is done in Javanese numerals on each page 1-557 while two pages carry no page number. Eight pages at the start and 3 pages at the end are blank. A mistake was made during the numbering as 143 does not continue with 144 but rather with 134. The same happens with 195 which continues with 186 etc. rather than 196. One page is damaged with some loss of text. The text is a poem written in Javanese tembang macapat verse.
