Gentlemen, Even When Thirsty…

Gentlemen, even when thirsty, do not drink of the Spring of Tousen. Patriots, even when hard pressed, do not forget the ditch.
The Fourth Year of Ansei, August. “A Explanation for Kouzaburo.”


*Tousen: a Spring in China reputed for evilness.
*Ditch: A shishi is prepared to give his life for the correct cause, even if it means his corpse will remain unburied in a dirty ditch.
