Welcome to the forum. :hi:

First, please look at my corrections above. Take care with your spelling when you copy text. Start every sentence with a capital letter and end every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.

Where did you find this text? Please tell us the source and the author.

Have you looked up the verb "confer" in a good dictionary?
