text: This evening we went to Churungchu's house where he gave us the same kind of toffee made with honey and maize flour that he gave to Hutton and Pawsey in 1923 and Pawsey broke a tooth. He also gave us some wild bee honey which has a delicious scent and flavour as though the bees had been drinking from some special perfumed flower.
