One night, at a very late hour, Tomozo heard the voice of a woman in his master's apartment; and this made him uneasy. He feared that Shinzaburo, being very gentle and affectionate, might be made the dupe of some cunning wanton, --in which event the domestics would be the first to suffer. He therefore resolved to watch; and on the following night he stole on tiptoe to Shinzaburo's dwelling, and looked through a chink in one of the sliding shutters. By the glow of a night-lantern within the sleeping-room, he was able to perceive that his master and a strange woman were talking together under the mosquito-net.

About the author (2004)

Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) was one of the first great interpreters of things Japanese for Western readers. His keen intellect, poetic imagination, and clear style have ensured him a devoted readership, among both foreigners and Japanese, for almost a century.
