text: As soon as I had recovered from my first astonishment, I began coveting those heads. I wanted to take them home as museum (127) specimens, and Mills, deciding to show his disapproval of the extermination of Saochu and Kejok by confiscating the fresh heads, furthered my idea. The heads were ordered to be cut down and taken to Chingmei.
