text: On the walk back I was told more tales of Dr Hutton. 'If a gaonbura did not understand him', Thepfuseu said 'Hutton Sahib would catch his ears and rub them. If a gaonbura did not do as he was ordered Hutton Sahib used (30) to say "You have made my hands dirty. Now you must wash my body" and everybody burst out laughing'.
