text: To Khizobama. A double march, but an easy one. I have orders here that when less than three coolies were required for any journey Swemi was to carry instead of Khizobama, which was to supply coolies when 3 or more were wanted. Several cases here, and some very doubtful requests for remission of revenue. I found the cover torn off the visitors book at Tekhubama, apparently by Capt. Wright's servant "to wrap mustard leaves in".
