41 Paper manuscript: pratyavamāśo.

51 Paper manuscript: yatum.

52 Paper manuscript: dharmmet-mukha-parāt-mukhaḥ.

53 Paper manuscript: rāgorddhāmana. Amended based on Shastri's conjecture.

54 Palm-leaf manuscript: duṣkrarā. Paper manuscript: duṣṭrurā.

55 Palm-leaf manuscript: pathineva. Paper manuscript: pathineca. Gawronksi: pāntheneva. EHJ in his Sanskrit text went with pathineva, but noted that Gawronksi's conjecture (which EHJ omitted from the variants by mistake) was probably right, since he could find no authority for pathin, 'traveller.' CSL: pathinena. UoW: pathineva. Since iva would seem to be required, and pānthena (“by a traveller”) fits the meaning and is not rendered impossible by the metre, Gawronksi's version has been adopted here.

56 UoW: viruddhā, as per the suggestion of L de la V Poisson.

57 Paper manuscript: -bhavet.

58 Both palm-leaf and paper manuscripts have prabhāḥ.

59 Paper manuscript: tramo.

67 Paper manuscript: nāraṇi.

68 UoW: tabhaāve.

69 Palm-leaf manuscript: śraddadhyān.

70 Paper manuscript: bhūvi.

71 Palm-leaf and apparently also paper manuscript: gṛhnāti. UoW: gṛṇhāti.

72 UoW: yato yathāḥ. EHJ: akṣata is used properly of an elephant doing things of itself without being forced to by blows from an ankus; or else read svataḥ or perhaps ivāñcita, as the hand should be crooked in receiving a gift.

73 UoW: dāridraya, faulty transcription (one syllable too many).

74 Paper manuscript: tathecīk. EHJ notes that the ṣī of the palm-leaf manuscript is very like a .

75 EHJ amended in his Sanskrit text to śreyasotpadā, noting that neither yataḥ (as per Hultzsch) nor yadā (as per the palm-leaf and paper manuscripts and Shastri) seemed possible. In his translation, however, EHJ reverted to the manuscript reading. UoW/CSL: śreyaso yadā.

76 Paper manuscript: yāvanārthena.

77 Paper manuscript: saṃvaddhayitum.

78 FOLIO 22a STARTS HERE.

79 Paper manuscript: pāriprava.

80 UoW: hiṃ.

81 See also 13.56. According to EHJ's “Preface to Sanskrit Text,” the metre is identified as śarabhā in Bhāratīya Nātyaśāstra 15.64-65, and is not known elsewhere; it seems to have yielded in classical times to the closely allied madhyakṣāmā.

82 Paper manuscript: yāvartta.

83 Paper manuscript: piribhūtendriyasya.

84 Both palm-leaf and paper manuscripts have śrayaś-ceti.

85 Paper manuscript: saundarānanda.
