text: The weather has become good again and a brilliant summer morning left no room for Christmas spirit to rise. It also was not very much in the spirit of Christmas that I packed up the small piece of head to bring to the people of Kongan. Not too early, about nine o'clock, I started off simultaneously with Dr Kunde and with only three coolies I rushed to Borjan.
