text: 17. Mr. Hinde's wounds not being of a serious nature, nor disabling him, we moved camp next day to Are, crossing the Doiang below Changse. Before starting, all the sick, and a few who had been wounded with panjies, were despatched to Wokha, the Yekam men coming in most willingly to carry those who could not walk. They also carried some of our loads to Changse, where we had no difficulty in getting fresh coolies to go on with us to Are. On the road, the Rechim headman made peace with us, and told us that twelve of his men and eighteen from Changse had joined with Pangti on that fatal day. He swore that neither he nor his men should ever fight with us again; on the contrary, should we ever be in difficulties with any other village, he would bring a force to our assistance. At Changse we found that huts had been built for us on the site of last year's camp, and a large supply of rice, fowls, and eggs was collected outside. Here peace was also concluded with the Changse men.
