text: Goanbura of Kenoma came in about the new school. I have got a pundit and the house is to be built and the school opened on April 1st. Repairs to the road over Paona have been completed. A deal of rock cutting has been done. Overseer is to see that the road Mohoris pay more attention to the wall building. Some of the walls do not look too safe, they are too upright and inclined to bulge out. At Peddi I heard the cases of Nakoma against Teijung. I decided a fence be jointly built to prevent cattle damage Nakoma giving 30 men for every 10 men of Teijung and that Teijung is to keep a herdboy and graze north of the village.
