text: To Tseminyu - 16 miles. The harvest in the Rengma country is a very poor one this year. No one seems to know why. Six households of Thegwepegedenyu have become Baptists and want to live separately from the rest of the village owing to quarrels; I said they must stay where they are for the present at any rate, and try and live at peace with their neighbours.
text: I got a letter from Mr Smith to say Yimpang have released the remaining two slaves they held and are not likely to oppose us when we visit them.
