text: In the morning I went to the fields with Yongang. The harvest is now in full swing. The boys and young men of the The-phong morung are just now working on the field of Yong-wei, the second wealthiest man of Wakching. He had requested the services of about twenty of them for two rupees and in addition he supplied food and madhu.
