Preview of English translation:

4. And as to why there is either a cake on three potsherds, or a pap, for Vishnu;—whatever men Agni, the giver, gives him, among them he thereby finally establishes him (the king); and whatever work he wishes to do with his men, that he is able to do. Thus he thereby approaches the men, thinking, “May I be consecrated, and possessed of men!” A dwarfish bull is the sacrificial fee for this (offering), for the dwarf belongs to Vishnu.
