text: (2) I want Mr. Barnes orders about the Serhima, Sachenobama boundary and any order passed by Mr. Cantlie.
text: (3) Send a parwana to Yangin to ask if he is prepared to train as a Compounder with prospect of being posted to Henima. It entails, I think one year at Dibrugarh or 3 at Kohima.

text: No orders were passed as I learned there was an old case. But I. a cattle path was given to avoid damage to Sachenobama crops.
text: II. Sachenobama was not to cultivate within 400 yards of Serhima until further orders after seeing papers. Their intention is to cultivate next year up to among the houses of Serhima and hold Serhima responsible for damage by cattle and pigs. I think I might go there on my way from a sessions at Dimapur as it is close to the road with Srisalhu and the papers and settle the matters.
