text: My companions were two. The first was my servant, Abung. He was a Kabui Naga; small, faithful, furry, and no cook, but he smoothed over more difficulties for me than ever I realized at the time. The other was a Manipuri compounder. A gentle, kindly soul, he was being sent with me by the new Civil Surgeon.
