text: 14th December, 1870, Wednesday. Having received intimation from the Commissioner that he would lie at Golaghat on the 20th instant where he hoped to meet me I made over temporary charge of the office to the Assistant Commissioner and marched to Dimapur.
text: 15th December, Thursday. Marched to Hurreojan.
text: 16th December, Friday. Marched to Borpathar. Here I found Mr. Cooper (who is proceeding to take over medical charge of Samaguting) and his family halted for want of carriage; all the Golaghat coolees had bolted. With considerable difficulty I managed to procure 28 men for him and I trust he will now meet with no further delay.
