He disregards him and kills a boar, then prepares it by boiling the hair off, roasting it upon a spit, and finally serving it on a plate with an apple in its mouth. A native servant present during the dinner witnesses this and is horrified. The uncle apologizes to the native head, but word gets out, and though the officer is to leave the area tomorrow, the natives get hold of him and give him the same treatment.; Four occupants of a small plane find they need to ditch in the ocean.
