text: To Aichi Sagami. I noticed on the way that only one of the girders of the Cis-Woroki bridge had been recovered after the flood washed out the bridge. The other cannot have gone far and ought to be recovered. It is probably buried under the silt that has formed a gravel heap at the junction of the smaller stream with the Woroki, in which case all that is required is a little digging.
text: One of the mile stones has gone and a wooden substitute has been put in. I asked why no stone was made and the Muharrir said "because no order has been given".
text: At Sagami Mr Lloyd Rees and I spent the afternoon in digging potatoes in the Sub-divisional Officer's experimental crop, which bore exceedingly well, and good potatoes, but many stolen by the adjacent village of inveterate thieves. Had my glasses broken and eye put out of action playing stump cricket in the evening.
