text: I heard a good many small cases, but my main object was Kacha Naga house counting which I failed to do in a short tour, as distances are much greater than they look on the map. I must go out directly after Commissioner's inspection and make up for this loss by double marches and get all the Kacha Naga villages and Kuki villages counted.
