text: (185) Wakching 14/8/1936. This morning I went to Shiong together with Nlamo. Although it was very hot this time the way seemed much shorter than the first time. We took exactly three quarters of an hour. I took my gun with me in order to possibly shoot a pigeon. Of course not a single larger bird was to be seen.
