245. We have referred in earlier chapter to the arrangements made for us by the Governments of North Borneo and Sarawak. We shoild however like to add our personal thanks to the Governors and to the officers of the two Governments both in the Secretariats and in the several Residencies and Divisions, from whom we received kindness and invaluable help.

246. In particular we record our gratitude to Mr. D. C. Walker, for his work in connexion with our Sarawak tour, to Mr. Yao Ping Hua, who accompanied us on most of our tour in Sarawak and helped us in very many ways, and to Mr. H. George, our liaison officer in North Borneo, whose arrangements were a model of forethought and efficiency. Our thanks are also due our interpreters and we should like to mention especially in addition to Mr. Yao, Mr. Abdul Karim, our principal Malay interpreter in Sarawak, Mr. Ho Yu Lin, our principal Chinese interpreter in North Borneo, and, Miss Raiting B.T.E. Sunggak, a very talented interpreter in Malay and Murut.

248. Finally, we offer our sincere thanks to our Secretary, Mr. I.H. Harris, whose devoted services and tireless efficiency, often in difficult and unusual circumstances, have won our unanimous admiration.
