text: Getting into camp was astonishingly easy, for the first apparent confusion dissolved in a very short time. The sepoys, their rifles always on their backs, improved the shelters, and the porters had soon lit fires and fetched water to boil their rice. Mills and I went to the village to gossip with the gaonbura over mugs of rice-beer and hear something of Sangtam customs.
