Entries describe the local environments, people and social activities. Tate includes notes about the native assistants on their staff and the local social customs.

Locations mentioned or described include Samarai, Menapi, the Maneau Range, Baiawa and caves at Dabora. Tate suffered a series of strokes during this expedition and was hospitalized. Geoffrey M.
