we tried to hunt up the little deaf boy again
& found out that the
family had run off to the jungle because a
rat dropped in their house, as they express
it, otherwise died of plague; so there was
nothing doing there. We also returned to the
deaf girl's poor hut, but did not see her nor
the grandmother; the mother seemed fa-
vorably [favorably] inclined, & Miss P. thinks if we
keep at them, will finally get her. After
breakfast, we were off by gharry to the junc-
tion [junction] several miles away, where we hunted
up the Mohommedan girl; here the mother
is against us, & the uncle said they had
caste, so don't know how that will end.
I got a couple of snaps of a Shan girl at the sta-
tion [station] while waiting for the train which I hope
will be good. Arrived in Rangoon safely.

February 7, 1922 - Tuesday

Was so interested in making our own ar-
rangements [arrangements] forgot to look after Miss T, but
as Miss Hunt met her presume she got a-
long [along] all right. Went to fortnightly prayer
meeting at Miner's; Dr. & Mrs. Robbins were
there, and the former spoke briefly as
did Mr. Wiatt, of some of their experien-
ces [experiences] in India. Refreshments consisted of
delightful homemade cake and lemon-
ade [lemonade]. The room looked rather attractive.
They have a piano, so Miss Hunt played
all the accompaniments, & Miss Hastings
sang a solo. I put away my clean clothes,


which came in Saturday; got up my
soiled ones &
took to the dhoby; put away the things I had
with me on my trip; and finally went over
to the deaf school to report about 4 p.m.
after tea here.

February 8, 1922 - Wednesday

This a.m. at 8 I had that long-hoped-for in-
terview [interview] with Dr. R., & he seems interested &
sympathetic with the deaf school proposi-
tion [proposition]. Mr. Henderson left last eve for Toung-
gyi [Taunggyi], while the others - its seems Mr. W. & Dr.
Nichols are accompanying Dr. R., leave this
p.m. for their two months' trip thru' the Shan
States and across the Chinese border to the
east. Mrs. Wiatt said last eve that she would lend
me a jungle cot and dishes for my trip to Zigon to
one of the district associations this week-end.
I straightened out & dusted the G. H. bookshelves
up stairs; when you can see what is on hand
there are some really good things there, though
most of them are in a rather dilapidated con-
dition [condition]. Got over a dozen letters from America
last eve, some of which I did not have time to
read till after prayer meeting. Mr. Chaney,
who goes home in a couple of months, has
been at the G. H., and today the Nykums from
Maulmein arrived, also on their way home;
they came here from Bassein by boat & sail
Sat., before most of the others do, as they go
to Calcutta & cross India to Bombay, get off
