In the morning, Kamenosuke sent the rest of the magistrates a message, indicating that they should meet up at around lunchtime, and not disturbh im before then. This made Ishie very happy, as she wanted to go see the messenger, and she'd prefer to do it alone. Unfortunately, she met Nagataka on her way down to the village. He decided to accompany her to the Inn, but chose to instruct the peasants rather than listen to her conversation with the messenger. In the afternoon, the magistrates [excluding Yashamaru, who appeared to be wandering the void] had a meeting with Doji Jirobei, Akitaka and Yumiko. They being the guy we think is responsible for everything going on, his father and the woman currently in charge of the village. Jirobei denies everything, though with some obvious lies. Isawa Daichi was kind enough to testify, though he accused her of lying, which was very rude, since he's most untrustworthy. Now, we need to decide if we're going to accuse him or not... Either way, there is likely to be a duel between him and Kamenosuke - which could result in injury.
Aside from that... Not much has happened. Button and I watched the latest adaptation of Persuasion last night. It was most enjoyable, despite large changes from the book and being rather short. I did enjoy it, however. Also, I asked JS what she thought about all the fat still coming off Pig's ribs and she agreed it was an obscene amount [that's what you get for dealing with fresh bone!] and made some reccomendations. On the plus side, she's now aware of why I'm not milling.
