5th. The proprietors have among themselves divided off their several portions of land, and no change or alteration can now be made. The trees of every description standing in each man's field, belong exclusively to him, and those that are in the lands held jointly by the fraternity, are the property of all the proprietors. According to ancient usage, a transfer of the right possessed by a Biswaldar cannot be made either by sale or mortgage.

6th. The putwarree's dues are on every maund of grain a quarter of a seer, and on the amount of the zubtee a quarter anna in the rupee. The chokeydar has 10 pucka seers of grain from each house, and two beegas of land. We will pay all fines and forfeitures; obey all orders from the courts and police, and we will not interfere with the rent-free lands.
As it has hitherto been usual for the lumburdar's son to succeed him in office, we will observe this ancient usage for the future. Should we, at any time, infringe those conditions, we shall abide by such punishment as may be awarded by the authorities to which we are amenable. We, therefore, in due execution of this malgoozaree engagement affix our respective signatures, this 7th day of August, 1836.
