text: 1938. Yimtsungre Sema war.
text: Blah in his 1270G dt. 8/1/38 reported that the Yimtsungr and Semas seemed genuine in their desire for peace. They appeared before him and said they were tired of war but of course he did not know how long this desire for peace would last. Asked for orders.
text: Reply: Such orders would lull the villages concerned into a false sense of security, no promise that Government would interfere in this war could be given.
text: (Lambert did not back our interference. I was on leave.)
