text: 31/7/1926 To Zulhami. Panikhets reported destroyed at Zulhami, Phegwimi and Metsalimi.
text: Khetsama and Kilophutemi applied for guns, and Satazu-nasami. One of the Phegwimi gaonburas applied for a loan to repair his panikhets but it is obvious that he cannot need it at present, nor use it for that purpose if he had it, so I refused. I fancy, however, that possibly a number of loans may be needed later on.
