text: 19/2/1926 Via Therochesema to Kotsami - about 10 miles, where I camped in a haunted hollow, but not troubled by ghosts.
text: 20/2/1926 Via Iganumi to Kesomi, about 11 miles. Iganumi is another Sema village which has adopted Angami dress and very largely, Angami customs. It was also a Christian congregation of sorts.
text: I saw here another new variant of the forked post ending in two huge heads with abnormally long noses and yoked together at the necks to keep the two posts from spreading apart.
