16th Dec. 1938 (Extract from Herald of December 1, 1888) HIS Excellency the Governor has been pleased to grant a free pardon to Tambarang who has taken the oath of allegiance and the reward offered for his apprehension is hereby cancelled. The following is an extract from Mr Wheatley’s report of Tambarang’s submission:- “On 22nd ultimo, I met over 500 persons from the interior Papar at the fair, and amongst the number was Tambarang the notorious headhunter. I did not arrest him as it is against the custom to arrest or create a disturbance at a fair and besides the chiefs of the interior brought him down to take the oath of allegiance to the Government so I trust that H.E. the Governor will approve of what I did.

AUGUST 3, 1938 THEY are in a way funny people, these river folk (orang sungei) found in Kampong Kuamut (Kinabatangan).
