Other notes:
The manuscript is ruined because of maltreatment and bad storage conditions in a bag. Nevertheless, the text is important for its information on the local history of Indramayu. Similar bags of manuscripts have been found in other villages but DREAMSEA could not access them because they are considered sacral by the local people.
