text: (183) Wakching 13/8/1936. With the help of a Wakching translator I tried this morning to get further information from the Ang of Chi concerning the feasts of merit. I got a description in rough outline but in the afternoon I went through them again with Ahon and noticed that my informants had left out many points. Ahon's description is so detailed and as I also take down all texts we did not get very far today.
