Île•dong. oII. Five small frs. Coarse ochre-coloured paper, somewhat frayed. Largest fr. 2" X 2/". Writing medium sized, slanting ; faint on obv.
Ile•dong. 013. Ochre-coloured paper. Fr. rte" x 2" of very narrow leaf which was only 2" wide. Writing only on one side, small, rather fine, cursive like. From middle of leaf.
Ile•dong. oig. Multitude of tiny frs., belonging to many MSS., some in Sanskrit, some not so apparently. They are too small for anything material to be deciphered from them.
Ile•dong. 020. Brown paper. Fr. 14'x 28". Writing very large, very thick, bold, clear, upright, angular. From middle of leaf.
ile.dong. 021. Brownish paper. Fr., being R. portion of leaf, 4" x 2", width of leaf being 2". Writing small, upright, angular, neat.
Ile•dong. 022. Brownish paper. Fr. of L. portion of a leaf with one corner, 51" x 38". Writing large, very thick, upright, angular.
Khad. ox6. Light brown paper. A large part of all the middle of a leaf, which is 38" wide ; R. and L. portions lost. Length of fr. I I 4". No cord-hole mark.
From the sense it appears that the obv. is the side not marked. This side contains some Slokas, and portions of Slokas numbered from 2 to 6 appear. Calculating from the missing portions of lokas and the size of letters, it seems that some 9" in the aggregate have been lost at both ends and that the leaf must have been about 21" long.
This passage comes from the Saddharnraprrndarika, KernNanjio's ed., xviii. p. 355, 1. 3, to p. 356, 1. to.
Khad. 017, 021, 022, 023, 025, and 026. These six pieces are parts of one leaf, and have now been put together. See Khad. 024, below.
Brown paper. The combined pieces form complete L. portion of leaf, the width of which is 7$", the R. portion being missing. Cord-hole in middle line, 6" from L. edge. The side uncovered with tissue paper is treated as the obv. Writing rather large, upright, and rather thick. Length 9y. Pl. CXXII.
The 67th section of this work ends in 1. 2 of obv. It appears from 11. 2 and 8 of rev. to be a Prajnä-päramitä.
Khad. 019. Brown paper. L. portion of leaf, which is 3s" wide. Fr. is I r" long, and has L. margin nearly complete. Cord-hole is 3. " from L. edge of writing. Writing medium sized, nearly upright. Pl. CXxIi.

Khad. 020. Brown paper. Triangular fr. of L. side of leaf, the width of which is 4". Length of fr. 48" to r V. Writing medium sized, thick, upright.
Khad. 021-3, see Khad. 017, &c.
Khad. 024. Brown. coarse, thickish paper. Fr. of R. portion of leaf, 48" x 24". Writing largish, upright, similar to the repaired leaf, Khad. 017, &c.
Khad. 025-6, see Khad. 017, &c.
Khad. 027. Brown paper. R. portion of leaf with R. margin nearly complete ; size 78"x38". Writing medium sized, upright. It contains verses, and as verses 3I-2 are in Upajäti metre with an occasional redundant twelfth syllable, a calculation shows that some 16 to 19 letters (according to their size) have been lost in each line in missing L. portion, that is, about 6" have been lost on L. side, including cord-hole.
Letters from another leaf have been imprinted reversely over rev., so rendering much uncertain or illegible.
These verses are verses r 34-43 in the Saddharmapundarika (Kern—Nanjio's ed.), ii. pp. 57-9.
Khad. 028. Coarse ochre-coloured paper. An irregular fr. of the L. portion of a leaf with the L. margin partially visible, a8" X 48". Writing large, very thick, squat, and angular, with the letters spaced apart.
Khad. 02g. This packet contains only small frs., often much crushed, of at least 8-9 MSS. Writing generally of Brähmi script, but in some cases appears to be different. The frs. are so small that nothing definite seems discoverable. Some frs. show traces of fire.
Khad. 039. Brownish paper. Fr., 3" x 4", of middle portion of leaf with one margin, the R. and L. portions being lost. Judging from position of cord-hole, the leaf was 5" 6P
