text: Now Chingmei and Noklak had the clever idea that these mithan could be considered as the latter's fine towards Chingmei as apparently Chingmei had been the injured party during the latest feud. Furthermore Chingmak received two layas, one of which he returned. As a first sign of friendship Noklak then helped the Chingmei men to bring the mithan to the border of their territory.
