text: Halted where I was in a rather uncomfortable camp as I couldn't in decency keep the Lapvomi coolies from their fields any longer and all my people badly needed a rest after three days continuous marching from 8.30 to 5.0 or so. So I sent off the coolies and sent a message by them for Karami Gaonburas. Meanwhile I sat still and wrote letters, though the dak due had so far failed to find me. Eventually it turned up in the evening together with the Karami Gaonburas.
