text: 9. On the 16th, we made a short march into Deka Haimong, where we had to halt for the purpose of observation. I found Babu Godula, the native missionary, at the village; he showed us every attention, and proved of great assistance. He gave a good account of his Naga converts, of which there are twenty-three, but complained bitterly of the oppression that this small village has to undergo at the hands of the powerful Hatigoria villages in the interior. Our rice arrived from the plains in the evening.
