When viewed yesterday, the high place seemed only to be a day’s journey more, but the actuality turned out otherwise.
We got a peek at it every so often as the path weaved to and fro. It is unmistakable that the idol of Stan has been replaced. And it is now even larger than the one we destroyed days ago.
I am sure that it is clearly visible to his troops far below in the valley.
We saw no movement in its vicinity, but we knew something was going on.
A wisp of smoke commenced at noon, and thickened into a column by day’s end.
The uppermost question now is – what will we do when we arrive on the scene?
