The second bundle consisted of a large piece of cloth folded double - apparently not a shirt. In it there was a most miscellaneous collection of oddments swept up by the officials, - remains of a small leopard skin robe, three or four gloves, one or two loin cloths and bandage pads, two collars, a wooden mallet, a kohl tube, a linen quiver(?), ring pad, knuckle bones, odd draughtsmen etc.

The third bundle consisted of a large shawl, 100 + wide. Two edges at least of this were fringed. In very bad condition. It contained only a few unrolled loin cloths, & a tied up pad of cloth.(tt).
