text: Dear Mr Balfour,
text: I am sending the Angami conch shell which I promised and one or two odds and ends. I have also got hold of one of the big daos used for the payment of bride prices by some of the Phom and Konyak villages, but it is heavy and I will send it sometime in a case by boat when freights are lower again, as I have a lot of other things to send.
text: I enclose some photographs.
