text: I then found out that the deceased had been only half Angami. His father was a Gurkhali, his mother Angami. She married a second time. That time an Angami and her son grew up as his adopted child, that is as an Angami. Even J.P. Mills had not been aware of this until today. He only heard about it now. Towards evening I took down my notes about the Thevo. For supper we had quite a good chicken, worked until half past ten and wrote a letter to Betty.
