From here is the beginning of the great Barakar Iherria line; the government may put a stop to it but will probably allow the bridge to be built. The races at Raneegunge on the 5th were great fun. Returned to Asanol and as they did not go at once to Baraker returned to Raneegunge and was invited to dinner by Mr. Geake, In the evening at Bartaker when they have not anything to do they ride out and hunt jackals.
