January 6, 1922 - Friday

This being a short day at language school, I
went to Jubilee Hall in the afternoon, with
Misses Chapman, Walden, the teachers and
most of the pupils, in an auto bus very
kindly loaned us by some kindhearted
man. The annual industrial exhibit
of the products of the province is being
held, and it was thought that this
would be a good way to advertise the
school and its needs, and thus acquaint
the people at large with the fact that
there is such an institution; great in-
terest [interest] has been manifested - may it
lead to great good. Arrived there, I first
went around to see the stalls, the metal
work (silver and bronze), ivory carving,
lacquer ware and silk weaving are espec-
ially [especially] good; the pottery, paintings, papier
mache, etc., leave much to be desired.
After this I returned to the stage, where
we have demonstrations with living
models, and helped in explaining the
work to the visitors; we have P. May at a hand
weaving loom, and the others with their
pillow lace making, as well as class room
work. A man gave me a hundred rupee note

for the work.

January 7, 1922 - Saturday

I went to town this morning, to DeSousa's,
the Press, & then to Dr. Murray, who gave me
what I believe is the best treatment I've had
in Burma. This p.m., I went ahead with the
teachers and older children to Jubilee Hall,
and the other two ladies with the smaller
children came later. I made a few pur-
chases [purchases] soon after arriving, as there were
not many visitors at first; bought some
of the black pottery, which is quite cheap, & a
couple of round lacquer trays. Mr. Shuhy
gave me a ten rupee note for the work; I
came out on the boat with his wife; this is
the 2nd time I've seen her since landing -
once on Christmas eve. They got nearly R.25
in small sums in the box yesterday and
over R.35 today. Dr. M., his wife and sister-in-
law [sister-in-law] were among the interested callers;
several of the A. B. missionaries were also
there. The children got very tired, but for the
most part were remarkably good, as no
one cried either day, nor tried to scratch
each other's eyes out. They took lunch with
them this afternoon, which was a much
happier arrangement than yes. when
they had the long wait till they got home.
We left about seven.
