text: We walked half & rode half of the way from Longsa to Mokokchung. Mills's bungalow there is extremely nice, in a splendid compound, part cultivated with flowers & vegetables, and part wild. He has his own tea plantation. Peach & mulberry trees stand on a knoll from which very fine views may be had. I took all my clothes out of the joppas, to air them, as they were all mildewed with the damp.
