The number of Moglen’s men packing the crate multiplied today. So they quickly and easily attained the high place.
We observed the proceedings with Tomas from our position, while Reuben and Sy watched from theirs.
My hopes rose after the crate was opened and I saw the idol laying there in pieces. I thought it was broken. But as it turned out it was in pieces only for transport.
Moglen arrived and supervised its reassembly.
The monstrosity was set in place above the stone altar before the afternoon was consumed.
That was when a commotion erupted down in the redoubt. To our horror Magwich had arrived and launched an assault to free Mawuli. They were all cut down and killed.
