text: 26th February, Saturday. Was out all day exploring the country to the east towards the Telezo mountain and ascertain that the Burrail range really does extend in one continuous line in that direction parting the rivers which flow north from those which flow south and I feel more convinced than ever that I am right in believing the Seejo to be identical with the Maw.
text: Dr. Brown returned in the afternoon and I regret to find he still adheres to his former opinion and promises to address me officially on the subject tomorrow.
