text: Halted Megwema. Mr. Gimson ill, so I went alone to see the disputed boundary between Khezakenoma and Sikhama (Tungam), a case which dated from 1904 and shows little sign of approaching senility. Sikhama clearly at fault. The boundary is a bad one, but was agreed upon at Mao by both parties the year before last. On returning to Camp we gave our orders, which Sikhama took very violent objection to, working themselves up into a very fine fury which they finished by hurling their red clothes at the Lambus and going off shouting defiance.
