This text is composed of three sections; A) 9 lines of the introductory section, B) table of omens, and C) 8 lines of the concise compilation of prognostics brought by the behaviors of the crow during a journey. B, the omen from the sounds of crow is arranged in a table format and not included in this edition. Verso, according to Takeuchi (2002: 123), it is classified as Letter Type III with greeting pattern 2. A line of Uighur script in thick black ink lies both between the line 7 and 8, and the line 9 and 10.
