PART II - CHAPTER XVI

§
The gods are pleased that I was filial and took the child yesterday to his father's mother, My Sister, for this morning a messenger came to us with a letter from my mother. It was addressed to my brother, and it said nothing of their angry words; it simply commanded my brother to come home. She said that she would take no further responsibility about the foreigner. The matter was too great for her. It must be decided by our father and by the male heads of the clan.
But meanwhile, she said, my brother could bring her home with him, and she could live in the outer court. It would not be fitting to have her mingle with the concubines and the children. Then the letter ended.
We were all astonished at the change in my mother's mind. My brother was at once altogether hopeful. He exclaimed over and over again with smiles:
" I knew she could give up her determination in the end! After all, I am her only son !"
When I reminded him that in no sense had she accepted the foreigner he replied:
" Once she is within the gates every one will love her."
