Summary
An elliptical document, referring to a dispute of which the context is unclear. Person A told person B that if B did not go somewhere, B must give A a mouthful of chewing tobacco (sur sti < Nep. surti). B made only a token gesture of going, and gave A the chewing tobacco, and there were witnesses to this, but now two of the witnesses deny having seen the chewing- tobacco changing hands.
