text: Arrived after a great delay only at 11 o'clock in Simalaguri after sleeping somewhat adequately. I had written to Castle about his rail trolly but my letter was too late and I had to telegraph for it to Naginimara. Finally it arrived at 2 o'clock and with much effort we packed in our luggage as far as I do not leave it to follow by train on Sunday. In Naginimara I found a pony and after 4 o'clock I was with Castle in Borjan.
