Original text on this topic:
Upon obtaining this information, I wrote to Sir Charles Elliott, who, in reply, informed me that when in Sadiya, the extreme N.E. station of Assam, in the winter of 1882-1883, or thereabouts, he heard that a very fine rhinoceros horn had been brought down to the Bazaar by some Singpho [from Northern Burma] for sale. This specimen, together with a smaller horn, was purchased by Sir Charles, the former being mounted as a trophy, and the latter made into an inkstand.
