text: This second tour was also undertaken under the orders of Government in order to obtain some knowledge of the unadministered and hitherto unsurveyed and unvisited area east of the frontier and the known country that adjoins it. Mr. Mills accompanied me from the 18th to the 31st of October, but unhappily was prevented from accompanying me in the month of November by a poisoned foot, which to his bitter disappointment, compelled him to remain in Mokokchung unable to walk. His place was taken by Mr. C. R. Pawsey, M.C., the officer destined to relieve him at Mokokchung. I had an escort of 50 men of the 3rd Assam Rifles under an Indian Officer.
text: From the 14th to the 24th of November we were in country which, as far as I know, had never before been visited by any European at all and was, for the most part, entirely unsurveyed.
