text: Half past three I finally arrived in Tamlu where the gaonburas soon gathered in front of the bungalow. One of them is the Ang himself called A-tung whose grandfather had come from Wanching. A-tung's mother is not an Ang woman (notebook 3 p. 31). An Ao from Chantongia who happened to be here as well gave me the Konyak names for many gennas and institutions common to both groups. I went to sleep early being rather tired.
