Excerpt from Miscellaneous Papers Relating to Indo-China and the Indian Archipelago, Vol. 2: Reprinted for the Straits Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society, From the "Journals" Of the Royal Asiatic, Bengal Asiatic, and Royal Geographical Societies; The "Transactions" And "Journals" Of the Asiatic of Batavia; And the "Malayan Miscellanies;"
This princess, when yet a girl, was carried off by Batara Kala, and placed with her attendants in a forest, where she changed her name and that of her waiting-women. The prince of Kuripan goes, attended by his followers, in quest of his intended bride, and in his rambles for that purpose takes the name of Rangga Ariya Kuda Nastapa, his followers too changing each his name.
In my possession is a copy (folio of 90 pages) wherein the parrot tells thirteen tales. In the library of the India Office there are two manuscripts of this composition (Nos. 2604 and 2606). The former contains twenty-two tales, but the latter only ten, whilst the introduction about Khojah Meymun is wanting in it. The two manuscripts of the India Office seem to belong to one and the same version, and only differ in the proper names, which have been changed to Malay ones in No. 2606. The versions in both differ from my manuscript.
