text: In the morning soon a gaonbura from Kanching appeared to collect the promised piece of head. All sorts of people from Tamlu also wanted parts but I refused all of them apart from the chowkidar whose son is sick and therefore could not participate yesterday. Pungwei said farewell in order to go to Kamahu.
