text: When the W. Ang dies all these morungs come and dance, moreover Kanching comes. (40) Each brings one cloth. Chinglong and Nian and Tangsa come too.
text: When the Ang dies the Ang of Chui comes with some of his men. The Ang of Wakching may come because he is now of the same clan, but for him and the Ang of Shiong there is no obligation. The Ang of Tamlu comes.
