text: The perennial dispute between the Intuma Gaonburas came up. I have refused to consider any question of altering the existing shares of commission during Tutongbo's gaonburaship. As long as he continues, he must get half the commission. When he dies or retires, then the question of making Huthanang Gaonbura alone, or of arranging that Huthanang shall eat revenue from the three khels which really belong to his share and Tutongbo's successor from his khel only, can be considered. Till then the present arrangement must hold good. Many cases. Inspected the dispensary and sent a separate report. Went on hearing cases till after dark.
