text: 19th March, Saturday. Having decided last night that our work was now completed, Dr. Brown and I parted company this morning, he to return to Mumreepoor I to Saw Magosting.
text: Moved camp this morning to Intoo, distance about 6 miles. This is the last Naga village within my jurisdiction and contains 32 houses.
text: 20th March, Sunday. Being anxious to visit both the Kookee and Kutcha Naga villages, I determined to cross my former route at Jelpee thus avoiding going over the same ground twice and moved camp back through Jelpee into Jampee having passed through Cachamee, a small Naga village only containing 20 houses about 8 miles over a bad road made worse by the incessant showers of rain.
