"Lieutenant Justice was deputed to purchase some light wagons and mules so we had another day in the village and transacted good business, going through the same ordeal at night. We started on our way back early in the morning, but before leaving paid our last call on Mr. MacKellar (sic) to hand over the precious property we were sent for, and received the same with religious sanctity. Lieut. Justice increased his bulk by wrapping the colours round his body and were in due course handed over to the rightful owners."
