text: In the later I saw two recent graves, one was of the gaonbura's wife and baskets, bamboo dishes, cloth, weaving, shuttles, cotton, gourds, and even a bottle with oil for her hair were all suspended over the spot. There were also two threaded squares of the kind which Kauffman has recently described in the 'Journal of the Anthropological Institute'.
