This chapter focuses on Tooy's final voodoo treatment of Roland in Martinique. It describes a procedure which involved the use of white cotton cloth, a box of eggs, a bottle of cane syrup, a bottle of rum, komanti sangaafu, and palipu palm. Roland was also bathed with rum and beer while praying. He was asked to write down all his problems. The ceremony lasted less than an hour.
