text: Extract from the Deputy Commissioner's letter no. 6093G dated 3/1/42 forwarding tour diary. What struck me on this as on other tours was the superiority in every way of our administered villages and villages of the transfrontier people. They are much better nourished and have better physique and they look more contented. It is quite time that Sampure and Longmatrarre and the villages in that area were administered. They are continually pressing for this step to be taken.
