(By Kim Young)

On the fifth day of the third month of Gapyin year (1614), Mrs. Kim, something-three years old (probably forty-three), who is the wife of the late scholar-in-training Yun Sahoe, said:

"Based on the appendix attached to the invocation made by the temple slave Privy, you [the official at the magistrate] have told me to verify the truth of the fact that I sold a slave. After the war, the destitute and desperate circumstances of my household has become so pressing, so I 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 my late husband's male slave Jeongryeon had bought [in his stead]--and his offspring forever to the same person [Privy] in exchange for a five-year-old male horse that is worth twenty-five bulks of cotton or four-thousand paper bills. I verify that this was the case."

Since the document was signed by Madame Kim and witnessed by (possibly) her relatives, would this the case that Madame Kim managed her husband's family property as the widow of the deceased Yun Sahoe?
