13th Jan. Halt Manipur Tea Estate. Went to Karicherra Tipra punji. They say they are [] but cannot give me names of any additional clans, although they say there are none, to the three already known. Verifying my Bipincherra visit I found the same state of affairs. The land around here seems wonderfully prolific. Distance 10 miles.
