Rif Ketubot 12b {Ketubot 28a continues}


{Ketubot 28a continues}
{Mishna continues}

ועד כאן היינו באין בשבת אבל אין נאמן לומר דרך היה לפלוני במקום הזה מעמד ומספד היה לפלוני במקום הזה
And {a man is believed when an adult to say about what he knew in his youth} that "until here we would come on Shabbat."
But he is not believed to say "Ploni has a path in this place; Standing and eulogy there was to Ploni in this place."

אמר רב הונא בריה דרב יהושע והוא שהיה גדול עומד על גביו כלומר מעיד עמו דכיון דקיום שטרות דרבנן הימנוהו רבנן בדרבנן
Rav Huna son of Rav Yehoshua said: And this was where there was an adult standing over him.
That is to say, he testifies with him. For since the establishment of contracts is Rabbinic, the Rabbis granted him credibility by Rabbinic matters.
