Preview of English translation:

9. And the Hotri recites seven metres—each subsequent one-versed (metre) increasing by four (syllables)—with the Viraj as an eighth: these (eight) consist of three eighties and forty-five syllables. Now by the eighties thereof the eighties (of the mahad uktham) are obtained, for the Great Litany is counted (or recited) by eighties (of triplets); and of the forty-five (syllables which remain) twenty-five are this twenty-five-fold body; and where the body is there, indeed, are (included) the head, and the wings and tail; and the twenty (syllables which remain) are the insertion;—thus much, then, is the Great Litany: thereby he obtains the Great Litany even in this (Agnishtoma). All these (three) are indeed obtained in the Jyotishtoma Agnishtoma: let him, therefore, perform offering with the Jyotishtoma Agnishtoma.
