text: (125) Some weeks ago Matche, a Yimpang man. had fled to Chingmei before the wrath of Pangsha and the threats of his own fellow villagers. For it was he who first listened to Chingmak's pleadings for an understanding with us. Once on our side, he proved very useful, informing us as to the enemy's plans, and acting as a much needed guide in Kalyo Kengyu country.
