text: Already yesterday I was told that today the house of the Thepong morung Ang would be rebuilt. This man called Ashang is not from the real Ang clan but belongs to the Metahu. As I took exact notes of the building's advance from one hour to the next I do not need to repeat everything here. (See notebook 9 p. 184-193; notebook 12 p. 1-9; 16-20).
