text: The Namsangya Nagas are found in the hills south of Jaipur in Upper Asam, near Hukunjuri tea garden, and from constant intercourse with the plains are more civilized and better clad than the clans of the interior. They have possession of salt springs, the produce of which enable them to obtain, without much labour, the raiment, ornaments, and addition to food which they require.
