We returned on elephants to the Gyein river, and rowed to its junction with the Salween, and then up the Salween to the Kado Kyoung. This is recently constructed on the riverbank in a grove of cocoa-nut, betel, and other palms and trees. Two Burmese merchants were chiefly at the cost of its erection. An ancient phoongyee came to meet us at this Kyounog, a kind of rural dean. He did not seem very intelligent. The commissioner who was with me kindly acted as interpreter, but I could not get up any conversation of interest." - page 126.
