Do you all attend. My daughter is betrothed to this person's son. If it be the decree of Prujaputi, the wedding ceremony will be performed at half past ten at night, on the tenth instant.
The young man's father also said, Do you attend. My son is betrothed to this man's daughter. If it be the decree of Vidhata, the marriage will take place. Let him get things ready, and I will do the same.
GOING TO MARKET.
Come, will you go to market? Go on.
O brother, this won't do. I have no income. I want money every market-day. Where is it to be got? This very day there is neither oil, nor salt, nor rice. I am thinking what I must do. There is but one rupee in the house. Go on. I must go. If there's no money I must take things from the shop upon credit.
What do you want from market? Brother, I have got rice, and the like; only I must buy greens, fish, and fruits or roots, to eat with my rice, and a cloth (saree) for my wife. The other day I brought and gave her one, but she has torn it. Other things must be as they happen: buying cloth shews me the dark, [i. e. exhausts my substance.]
Oh! brother, I must also buy four or five suits, and two or three sarees; but it can't be till I get money.
WOMEN GOING TO MARKET.
Come, go on while it is morning. If I don't sell the thread, salt, oil, and necessaries can't be bought.
O sister, I went that day to Kula-Ghat market. By that I saw, that the forehead [luck] of the thread was on fire. What do you think the burnt-foreheaded weavers say: they say thread is eight puns a skein. I sold all that thread at a kahun.
