around and saw the place was filled up with men all on blacks with weapons of all kind.
Me:where are mine?
Capon:in the intiation field
observer bring the calabash…observer brought in the calabash,to cut the long process short,they used a new blade to cut my thumb and my blood was added to a liquid content already in the calabash
Capon:drink from the calabash.
I took the calabash and drunk a little from it
Capon:finish it…i took it into my mouth and
emptied the last content in it, its just tastless.
Capon:good.you have now taken the oath of the
black men fraternity(oath!)and any day you
