text: 4/2/1926 To Thachumi via Longmatrare about 12 miles. On the way, I dealt with a fresh boundary dispute that had arisen between Khuvukhu and Ngoruare. There were a number of disputes which came up that evening of which one between Longmatrare which is unadministered and Purr (Photsimi) which is in the district, gave most trouble. It was the usual sort of dispute about land which both villages had cultivated. It was ultimately satisfactorily settled by Photsimi's taking oath and getting the Tizu river as the boundary.
