text: To Yimza, another much decayed village on the outer range, not visited for many years. The path, as far as there was one at all, peculiarly bad, mostly along the narrow bed of a stony stream. There was an alternative though longer route, which was said to be blocked by bamboos cut across it. When I got to the village I found all the men away, (except the Gaonbura who was ill) gone to clear the other path.
