text: (84) Hroilhu, a "son" of Chen's came in. They were all wearing the "Chang" dao box and I noticed one of them with a dao made in Mom(?). This is the place where most of the Chang daos come from.
text: The wearing of dao boxes is said to be the old custom, and the sticking of the dao in the belt to be a much later idea.
