text: 26 March.
text: To Pogithung-issu - a heavy thunder storm on the way and another at night. The camp full of leeches.
text: 27 March.
text: To Yekhum. A steep climb and then a sort of reluctant pub-crawl through three villages, arriving feeling like a mixed but unshaken cocktail of indifferent material.
text: 28 March.
text: Halted and disposed of a dak.
text: 29 March.
text: Another dak in the early morning - to Wokha.
text: 30 - 31 March.
text: Halted Wokha, visited the Hospital. The first day made hideous with litigation till after dark, the second unexpectedly peaceful, which was fortunate as I was seized with influenza or some plague of that nature.
