text: As the doctor is going down to Borjan today I worked all morning on an illustrated article and wrote some letters. In the village the The-pong people continued to be occupied with all kinds of preparations for the morung building. In the evening I asked Dzing-ben to tell me about the ceremony connected with the rebuilding of the Oukheang morung which seems to be very different from the The-pongs.
