text: To Borjan. Opium is being smuggled here. One man was caught receiving it by post from Darjiling district, and the Sub-divisional Officer convicted him, but there are certainly other sources of supply not yet detected. Information reached us that a Pathan brought in 3 seers, but it could not be verified.
