text: When we got up at five thirty it was raining and we waited in vain for an improvement in the weather in order to get to Runguzumi where Mills had to do a census. When it was still raining at eight thirty we gave up our plan and called Thevoni and an interpreter from Cheswezumi and we continued our questioning about the position and meaning of the Thevo.
