It came to pass on the twenty-fifth day of the eleventh month that Cheresh approached Yaunsi and spoke to him, saying, “Is not the wicked progeny of the man from Vim-Ti seeking to breach the entrance of the land of the Pans?” And the two men of the Pans feared a great fear, and they asked one another, saying, “What shall we do?” For they knew that if the Budge-Nuzzard should enter the land of the Pans it would be for dreading and desolation.
