text: 10. On the 25th, we marched to Kakenagami, passing through Nunomi and Gueshalogami, remaining at each of the villages for an hour or so. The people behaved well, supplying us with fowls &c., though we did not ask for them. On the 26th, we went up to Lalumavu Peak, leaving the camp in charge of the jemadar. While up here I noticed thick dark clouds of smoke rising from the direction of Pangti, and drew Mr. Needham's attention to it. We had an idea that the people of that place were being punished, but little suspected then the calamity that had befallen the leader of the expedition. The mark was put up, a few angles observed, and we got back to camp just before dark.
