text: To Dehoma Kuti, about 10 miles, leaving the camp to go on and turning aside to lay a boundary between Dehoma and Theniazumi on land dispute that came up on appeal (Political Case No. 21 of 1928). It was a bad boundary, but it was raining all the time. I camped by the river and was lucky to find an old Kuti empty to put my servants in. It rained all day. About 12 miles.
