text: To Primi. The path not so good, but the ground worse. At Primi where there are only just over 100 houses a fifth head man came forward with a claim for a cloth. They gave me quite a different statement of their clans to that recorded by Mr. Barnes. I refused the man a cloth and warned the village that when they were assessed to revenue they would probably only get two Gaonburas.
