text: To Wakching. I visited the dispensary. The anti-syphilitic campaign has worked wonders. I have never known Rs.1000/- spent to better purpose, and the S.A.S.- Dhawara Mech - is to be congratulated on his excellent work. I wish his two years here were not coming to an end. What we want now is an anti-leprotic campaign on the same time, as there are three leper segregations within reach, but it is too much, perhaps, to expect two such good S.A.S. running, and we may get stuck with a useless man, as at Wokha apparently.
