text: 15th December. We moved Camp to-day to the Dehorimukh and encamped in the jungle on the right bank of the Kolliani and close to a Mikir village - fever again.
text: 16th December. As there was no path through the jungle and we are anxious to visit the Heelfotta, the spot on the Kolliani from which the boundary line between Seebsagar and the Naga Hills goes off due east, we made a rough raft and went down to it by river just managing to get back to camp about an hour before sunset. Had another slight attack of fever but the river trip seems to have done me good.
