The Peadars usually called Peons run before your palenqueen and carry messages. The bearers are the chairmen, it is necessary for every person in a family to have six or eight of them, the lower castes of bearers take their turn to carry the mussal (*a fort of Torch) before the palenqueen; but the superior castes who are cleaner and more creditable will not condescend to touch it, therefore to every set of bearers it is necessary to have at least two boys of a low caste called Mussall Chies.
