This chapter describes Tooy's singing to the sea gods. It explains that Samaraka sea gods are known to have particular affinities with white people and that for forty years the author had a special relationship with these divinities. After the singing, Tooy said he would be charging fifty francs for Roland's treatment, the same amount he had charged person he has cured in Guadeloupe. He also explained that the next procedure “knocking the stone” would be cheaper.

Keywords:   sea gods, Tooy, Samaraka, white people, divinities, knocking the stone
