text: There were a lot of men and boys especially in the Ung-bang, some of them occupied with the tasks such as weaving mats. Some households have converted to christianity in the unfortunate form of the American Baptist Mission, a small chapel stands in enormous contrast to the morungs due to its bad taste.
