Chapter Summary

Hearing that von Siebold was about to arrive in Nagasaki on his second journey to Japan, Ine and Ninomiya Keisaku rushed from Uwajima, where they happened to be temporarily at that time, to Nagasaki to meet him. Ine met her father in Donker Curtius's room on Dejima or, according to another source, in Dejima's surgical room. Alexander von Siebold and Heinrich von Siebold were able to accomplish diplomatically much of what von Siebold had failed to do in the second half of his life. But then, lacking the vigorous academic training of their father, Alexander von Siebold and Heinrich von Siebold were not scholars, nor reputable academic authors. In many ways, they continued von Siebold's legacy, not so much as scholars, but as diplomats and collectors.
