   Rapeto, hono, dia Vazimba talohan' izany Andriamanelo, mpanjaka tatý fony fahagola. Teo Ambohidrapeto andrefan' Antananarivo, no vohitra nitoerany. Lavabe nahatakatra ny lanitra izy. Tany anaty ala atsinanana no nandrahoiny ny variny, nefa tany Ambohidrapeto no nihinanany azy. Tany Ambohitrarahaba, avaratr' Antananarivo, no filalaovany, ka nataony indray mandingana ihany hatreny Ambohidrapeto ka hatreny Ambohitrarahaba. Izy no nanao ny tsentsin-drano vato vaventibe ao am-bodin' Itasy, ka namboariny ho farihy lehibe, hisotroan' ny ombin-dRasoalao vadiny. Ilay vato loaka tahaka ny dian-tongotr' olona ao an-dalamben' Ambohitrarahaba dia nohitsahin' ny faladiany sy niankinan' ny ranjony, hono, hampisehoany ny heriny. Ary ny loadoaka eny amin' ny vatolampy maro dia lazaina hoe diany avokoa. Indray mandeha izay dia nanampatra ny heriny loatra izy ka naka ny volana holalaovin' ny zanany ; kanjo nasian' ny volana diamanga izy ka dangy nitsitra terý. Lazain' ny sasany kosa anefa fa nankany atsinanan' Amorokay izy, ka tany no nahafatesany. [Dahle: Angano page 53]
