text: To Wangla about 12 miles. Met Mr. Mills and the escort - a Jamadar and 30 rifles. Found the Sangnyu (Changnoi) head man in, and also those of Ngangting to which we were going, all very friendly. Height 2400. They have an old iron cannon in the morung, much damaged by fire when the morung was burnt. It was found and brought back from an old iron foundry of the Shans at the foot of the hills.
