Summary
A register of Te’s taxes (phral mo ches [khral mo che]). Each name is followed by three categories: house tax (grong khral), poll tax (mi khral) and land tax (sa khral). The figures are in paise, and payments are of the order of 25 paise per entry. (Note: kog—variously spelt—signifies three quarters. Thus kog dang lnga = 4.75.)
