text: Before leaving Henima produced their newly appointed cattle herds - four of them. Kalu for mithan, Jamlabo for buffalo, Kuwilo for kine, and Tashibo will herd separately the cattle of Widaobo (I.B. Chaukidar) and himself as they must be kept near the village to provide milk.
text: On the way Jossama came up to try and wriggle out of their fine and confessed that they were still unable to produce a cowherd. They offered to pave the path instead, and I accepted their offer telling them that if it was finished before their revenue was due they would get back their Rs.50/-, otherwise they would lose it and still have to pave the path.
