Excerpt: ...when a calamity arises from Fate, Colebrooke translates the same clause (samayesve vyavasthi-tah) somewhat freely: " unless bound by aprevious agreement; " see Dig. ii. 3, vii., where this passage is quoted. t Omitted in Colebrooke's translation, ibid. xiii. from robbers, or from the king, is entitled by law to a tenth part of them. 7. Should one partner meet with a calamity, his heir shall undertake the work; or, if there be no heir, another partner, who is able to do it; or, if there be no such person, all the partners. 8. When an officiating priest has been disabled, another priest shall perform his work, and receive from him the stipulated share of his fee. 9. Both the priest who abandons a sacrificer, though he be no offender nor otherwise faulty, and the sacrificer who abandons a priest, who is no offender, shall be punished. 10. Officiating priests are of three sorts, hereditary, appointed by the sacrificer himself, and he who voluntarily officiates for friendship's sake. 11. This is the law for hereditary priests and for those who are appointed by the sacrificer himself; but there is no offence in abandoning a priest who officiates of his own accord. 12. A merchant should in passing by a toll-house pay the toll, which has been fixed; no wise man should neglect to do so, it is called the Icing's due. 13. He who avoids a toll-house, he who buys or sells at any other than the ordinary time, and he who makes a wrong estimate in declaring the value of his property, shall pay eight times the amount of his gain. 14. Should a travelling merchant, who has come from abroad, meet his death, the king shall keep his goods and chattels till the heir makes his appearance. 15. Should he have no heir, let the king deliver it to his relatives or more
