text: Marched again miserably in the rain to Lakema. Lakema came up to complain of having to supply rice to the hospital at Henima, as well as on the road. It is difficult to do good in one way without its cutting back another. Apparently in-patients have greatly increased at Henima of late, and therefore Lakema have had to supply twice instead of once this year.
text: Lakema and Bolbung have a dispute as to who has to keep up a certain mile of the bridle path. I said that they were to do half each till further orders.
