text: The second man of importance in the legation is Mungo, the leader of the Nokshonkham khel (5) while the third one does not open his mouth and seems to be of no importance. The communication is established with the help of two translators, Nakhu and a Yimpang gaonbura as none of our Chang dobashis understand the language of Pangsha. What the Pangsha men have to say is wise and dignified. They attempt neither defence not accusation. What has happened has happened. We had destroyed their village and had killed some of their men but now they were ready to make peace and that is why they followed Mills' call.
