And the Yaksha said, 'These thy brothers, O king, repeatedly forbidden by me, would forcibly take away water.

On the other hand, there was a deposed exile, who had tried repeatedly, and in vain, to recover his throne, whose whole life had been a tissue of misfortunes and feeblenesses, and who now lived on the charity of the Company in their own territory.
