text: Started the Khozoma-Chipoktama cane cutting case - then to Pesetsu, an offshoot of Chipoktama. Hutton said it would be necessary to divide the lands of the two villages, but neither side wants it now and it was settled that the three khels near Pesetsu be brought (sic) by Pesetsu and so danger of fire through careless jungle burning be avoided. Pesetsu had only 7 houses now and may possibly soon disappear, as Pesetsu is dead and Dazo his son has his own sons at Chipoktama.
