text: My dear Archer,
text: I like to think of you starting for Mokokchung. I wonder if you are going the direct way or by one of the Sema roads. Yes, Angami carving is fine. The Eastern Angami house fronts are even finer that the Western, I think. When you are at Mokokchung you might see - Yimlong could help you - if can can get any chungas carved by Kaolum of Hukpong. He used to carve in high relief. His heirs might part with one .... (J.P. Mills)
