text: He told me that he helped with the foundation of Lapha (see notebook 8 p. 86) and when we actually sat down in the Dzing-shong morung he gave me a detailed account about the founding history of Wangla (notebook 8 p. 93-96) from which it becomes apparent that the Ang clan was not called in from Hangnyu until later.
