text: The Ahom Rajah who went to Wanching and married the Ang's daughter was Godhatar [sic]. He stayed in several places in the Naga Hills, then he went to Sibsagar with his Naga wife, Watlong. But he remained in close touch with his wife's family and came to see them in Wanching (49) and they came to Sibsagar. His wife died in Naginimara ("Naga-wife-die").
