They found a pencil, a watch, and several other thins there. The officers made a list of the fings when they had found in my pockets, and gave the list to the emperor. He told me to throw down the sword, my pistol, and some other things. The emperor liked my watch very much. He told two officers to take it away. They carried it on a pole.

| The emperor often
came to see me in order to learn various things.
One day when I was talking with emperor, a messenger came to him. The messenger seid to the emperor.
"When we were walking along the shore, we found something huge and black. Nobody knows what it is. It may be some great sea-beast, but it is not alvie, for it dosen't move."
