text: (192) Wakching 16/8/1936. Today on Sunday I spent most of my time writing letters, putting together an illustrated article on Naga architecture, and on other domestic matters. There was little to do in the village because men, women and children had gone fishing and only a few stayed behind. I traced the relief in the Ang morung.
