Chapter Summary

The author was discovered and captured by the natives on 24th of January, 1972. Judging from the tone of their voice and their demeanour, they were trying to reassure him that they were no danger to him. The author did not trust them because two of them wore US military uniforms, and three had guns. In the village, the author was put into a house under galvanized sheet iron roof, which was apparently their house. Everyone kindly took care of him. He ate rice for the first time after more than some twenty years. The author was taken to the official residence of the Governor of Guam, Carlos G. Camacho, in Agana, being accompanied by Consul Shintaku and Mr Tsutsui. Here, he attended a press interview for the first time in his life. He was treated in a hospital and fianlly sent to Japan, where further treatment was given.
