text: 26th. To Kekrima - a double march. "Yasebami" (Mhelomi) complained of the drastic cutting of their village fence; this has let in various diseases which afflict their village through which the bridle path and many strangers pass. Their miles, or one of their miles, had both been exchanged with part of Mesolozumi's share so that Yasebami in future cut their own village fence where it overhangs the bridle path.
text: I dealt with a tiresome three cornered land dispute by the way, lunched at Takhubama at 2.0 and reached Kekrima by 4.30.
