text: 12/7/1936. We used this morning for a walk along the village of Wakching. Earlier we visited the school where a teacher from Tamlu teaches about twenty boys to read and write. As there is no teaching material in Konyak they use an Ao primer. I promised that during my stay here I would gather a small exercise book in the language of Wakching.
