text: To Baimho. The climb up from the river is very hot and there is no shade at all. Most of the trees planted recently have died. Hevishe of Sotoemi recently back from France came too for work as a Dobhashi. I told him that there did not seem much chance of a permanent vacancy at present. However he is a very suitable individual and I dare say he might be able to get an acting job occasionally. He is certainly more suitable than the product of Sapotimi at present acting for someone or other.
