text: In the evening come men from Himbu to Noklak. Himbu is in Burma and it is Pangsha's neighbour and close friend. They had heard of Pangsha's destruction and had already made their visit of condolence. It is not quite clear why they came to Noklak. At least we heard through them that Pangsha admits to have lost five men in the attack (267) probably that number is too low however. Mills sent a message to Himbu that they might come to our camp. Indeed they appeared in the evening and were served with rum.
