text: We returned home with the sun still shining but in the afternoon it pours again. In the afternoon we get the sad news that Tsampio's youngest child has died. He wants to go to Kohima this Saturday. (142) At the same time I had a letter from father and the copies of the films I had taken during my first stay in Wakching and on the tour to Mokokchung.
