text: We welcome the small corner of civilization in Mokokchung offered by Smith's bungalow. His cook has prepared a marvellous meal, and after so long a time on short rations we eat gluttonously. Here we hear of the abdication of King Edward VIII. The world 163) and its troubles have caught us again. Only Smith is to remain in Mokokchung. Mills and Williams must return to Kohima, while before me lies a long march into Konyak country. Once again the evening finds us united over gin-and-bitters. We congratulate each other on our safe return and a tour full of unusual experiences.
