The same day, ex-public servant Kim Wu, who is fifty-one years of age, scholar Kim Deukmyeong, who is ?? years of age, and scholar-in-training Kim Deukrok, who is thirty-two years of age, have reported:

"Based on the appendix attached to the temple slave Privy's invocation, you [the official at the magistrate] have told us to verify the truth of the fact that Mrs. Kim sold a slave. We verify that after the war, the destitute and desperate circumstances of Mrs. Kim's household has become so pressing, so she sold the eighteen-year-old male slave Jongnam born in Jeongyu year--the son of a female slave Geundeok who is the daughter of a female slave Seokgeum whom Mrs Kim's late husband's male slave Jeongryeon had bought [in his stead]--and his offspring forever in exchange for a five-year-old male horse that is worth twenty-five bulks of cotton or four-thousand paper bills. It is the case that we all witnessed this."
