Utilizing the theory of philological explanation from Henri Chambert-Loir. The results of this study were the reconstruction of text/characters as the content of the manuscript which was abstract and essential, to be precise the calligraphy characters found at the main entrance, front door and back of the left-wing of the Tjong A Fie Mansion museum building.
