10 Have a confession to make. In packing up this morning I forgot the thermometer! Have been cussing myself off and on for some hours. As my wedding day draws near I become absent-minded! Anyway, I learned at the Mbuli's house that Wangava lake has living coral in it so the lake may not be so important as I had hoped. I'll sample it anyway. Wangava's narrowness, like that of Namuka, is due to downfarthing which removed a part yet it still has the [[underlined]] basin shape [[/underlined]] & here, I suspect, is another case where an atoll-like rim is due purely to erosion. I'll get as much dope on the physiography as my limited time will permit. I shall be [[underlined]] surprised [[/underlined]] if I find good orbitoids. [[end page]] [[start page]] 11 Its now becoming uncomfortably cold so I'm going to retire to my blankets with an ancient magazine Toodle-oo- Harry P.S. - I dislike giving the Tütings such a black reputation. Its something like telling tales out of school so please don't pass them on except to Ruth. However, they [[underlined]] were [[/underlined]] responsible for my Namuka delay so I can't keep quiet about them when reporting to you. Their unpopularity is so universal in southern Lian that I am pretty well convinced that most of the stories are partly true. They seem to have cheated everyone they met & when promised pay was asked for Tüting would get brave & offer to fight. Such was the case here & they were finally asked to move out of the house I am now
Orbitoid = related to genus Orbitoides (invertebrate fossils) -@meg_shuler
