Footnotes

  • Oho-i was the wife of a fencing master who was one day walking with pails of goat's milk when a brigand, stealing up behind her, thrust his hand under her arm to feel her bosom. Instead of spilling the milk, she trapped the scoundrel by pressing her arm firmly to her side and dragged him home to dish out his punishment.
