text: While we sat in the Linglopunga morung a peon from Haflong arrived with a sealed letter from the Governor's secretary. The letter contained letters from Betty, Ali Yavar Jung and Goswami, but no news from Delhi.
text: I used the returning peon to send a letter to Lahkar with a request for a lens for the NEFA film camera, if it could be loaned to me.
text: Only after he had gone did I try the camera again and found that it worked after all.
