Stories of the Drifting [5] (Kyushu Nichinichi Shimbun [newspaper])

● Stories of the Drifting (continued) (*Part 5 (final part))
That night, the two boatmen (text omitted) were fast asleep, when thieves looked in and saw them, they came in and stole everything, including our rice and leather cases. As a result, I had nothing to wear except for one set of shabby clothes, and had no one to turn to as I was alone. I was in a daze and hardly knew what to do. Luckily, however, there was a branch of the Japanese store Rakuzendo, as well as Tokiwa Yōkō (a clothes store) and Dozan-ken (a photography studio) in that place (text omitted) (They) took pity on us.
