text: In response to the question of how many morungs there are in Nokhu they begin to count up at length and finally with the help of their fingers they come to the conclusion that there are ten. (16) Then Mills gives them ten pieces of newspaper as a sign that they have seen us and that we want to see the representatives of the ten morungs. With this commission they leave and we hope that we can clear up finally the case of Nokhu in Panso the day after tomorrow.
