text: Ou-nie-bu - lasts two days. They are not quite certain when Ou-nie-bu will be held because due to clouds the moon could not be seen for some days, and they didn't count the days from the time of new moon.
text: They meant to sacrifice mithans and buffaloes but none are to be had at present in Chi and Lengha, and the road to Mon is very bad and in the rain it is extremely difficult to drive a mithan.
