First the clerk shall read to you the articles of agreement, in accordance with which Pasio leased to the defendant the bank and the shield-factory. Take, please, the articles of agreement, the challenge,1 and these depositions.“ Articles of Agreement ”“ Challenge ”“ Depositions

2 He had been given his freedom by Pasio.
