text: 18th. - We started out at 7-0 to go to Sangpurr in wrath and had crossed the river and were well started up the horrid climb when the missing man and one son turned up As they ought to have been there with their coolies at Chentang they got well beaten and we sweated back up the hill again to Chentang and thence started for Kuthurr, packing up camp and getting away at 9-45, which, considering the delay was very good work. The Tuensang corner-boys did their share of carrying and did it very well. We got up to Kuthurr, about 8 miles up-hill all the way, by about 12-30 It was not a very interesting village. [SKETCH
