text: Halted today. Butler still unwell. Men from Razama came in & reported that Munipuris had not come to their village as sahibs were near but that they had looted Gariphemah. They were anxious we should come to their village. They were very dirty untidy men. Villagers of this place went up clear mark on Kopamedza & I sent two men [30] Bhimnarain & another with them. Worked out the Triangulation during afternoon.
