text: 21. We halted at Tablung till the 9th, in order to put up the mark and observe, and to answer a large budget of letters which we found awaiting our arrival. On the 9th, leaving our sick and incapables behind, we started once more. As all the marks were now up between Wokha and Tablung (with one exception), by retracing our steps we could observe at each point and complete the triangulation in the so-called Western Naga Hills. Messrs. Hinde and Ogle were to return to Wokha nearly as they came, and Colonel Tulloch and I were to return also nearly by the same route by which we had come, making, however, a detour to the east of Wokha to clear the last necessary hill.
