text: 21st. To Sakhabama. The road moharrir went with me and I pointed out some work that ought to be done for the protection of the Dzulu bridge. I gave Pfukuzale leave to cut a tree on the land, but within the reserved distance from the bridle path, just across the bridge.
text: I told the muharier and chaukidar that they could cultivate the Government panikhets here, in so far as these have not been let to others. The condition of their cultivating them is that they leave them when they leave Sakhabama or cease to live at the site of the bungalow and that they act as chaukidar for all Government panikhets there and prevent encroachments by Theniazumi or others.
text: An indent was given on the Chaukidar for rice etc. from villages. This is contrary to standing orders under which no rations are supplied at all at Sakhabama. Probably the Assistant Commandant did not know the orders when issuing a chit on the chaukidar for rice for Zakahie.
