text: To Mapsa, the last part of the way by boat, about 4 miles.
text: 1 April
text: To Mohumi, about 7 miles. From there I was able to see the land in dispute between Rongozumi and Hanyimi and to point out the line to be taken by the boundary, which will have to be laid by dobashi. [No dearth] of litigation hereabouts. Mohumi is a slough of disputes. I made one Zhetovi Gaonbura to the disgust of the other applicants, but with remainder to the son of his elder brother Khowakhu.
