text: (43) Camp Tuensang 8/12/1936
text: One of the coolies who had remained behind in the Chentang camp had also pierced his leg with a panji during our absence and as the tip had broken off the doctor babu now has to cut it from the man's calf. Each of the three injured is carried by four men. In addition fifteen coolies had already started for Tuensang at night with our mithans as these animals are easier to drive during the night than in the heat of day.
