From Vol. 3, dated July 26, 1925: "The dance performed in the sixth moon on the sixth day (Chinese) is called the Cham ngyon wa or the old dance. The dances performed in the 10th and 1st moon are known as the new dances or Cham soma.... [The Cho-ni prince] remained with me throughout the dance and ordered every dancer to appear in front of my camera to be photographed. The lamas did not like it but there was nothing to be done, and at the conclusion of every dance they lined up in front of the camera and posed for their pictures." (107-108)
