The Sĕrat Kaṇḍa MS., of which the following is an excerpt, is the same MS. as that from which Brandes has made two long extracts, namely cantos 301–374 in the Notulen (Minutes) of the (former) Batavia Society, Vol. XLII (1904), pp. CXXIV-CXLVII, and cantos 374–415 in his edition of the Pararaton (2nd ed. pp. 216–230). The part excerpted below immediately precedes that in the Notulen, so that we now have a running summary of the contents of cantos 189–415.
