text: It is not uninteresting to observe that the exhaustive notice of the Kukis in Kachar by Major Steward, of which the details I have given are an imperfect abstract, shows that notwithstanding their repeated emigrations they have not in their most salient characteristics swerved from the customs of their forefathers, as depicted by the author in the Researches quoted above, who wrote about them sixty years ago.
