text: To Hokiya via Temimi. After counting Temimi climbed up the fearfully steep hill west of Temimi then along the far slope to Hokiya, a longish march and difficult. Many Semas gathered together at Hokiya and on the way some came into Temimi. There is a land dispute between Temimi and Setuho. Temimi sold all their land north of the stream to Setuho and deny any further sales but it is quite clear that at least one man in Temimi has sold land south of the stream to Setuho and very likely indeed that as Setuho allege, others have too. Anyway it will be necessary to lay a boundary.
text: There is also a land dispute between Tehephema and Satoi which according to the record was disposed of by Mr. Cantlie who fixed a boundary, though both sides say they never heard of the case having been settled, and know of no such boundary. Probably it can be done on the road tomorrow.
