text: The census of the households, again accompanied with much shouting and debating, took up one hour and we had to climb back up the mountain to the bungalow in the middle of the day. The afternoon we spent sleeping and working. Mills had to decide over several law cases. The disagreeing parties accompanied by numerous friends made a hellish noise near the bungalow.
