text: The tribe named Kamsol is really Khongjai, they being descendants of the Mangvoong clan. They have been long in subjection to Munnipore, and want the independent look and bearing of the congenerous tribes, who have more recently come under dominion, but in their language, habits and customs there is no difference.
