-the man who salvaged a Dutch sunken ship-

Fortunately, officers from the Nagasaki magistrate's office rushed to the scene with a rescue ship before the Eliza had fully sunk.

At first, everyone transferred the cargo to the rescue ship, rescued human lives, and drew the ship to Kibachiura. But on the morning of the 19th, two days later, the Eliza had sunk off the coast of Habuta-bay. The Dutch owner of the Eliza asked the Nagasaki magistrate's office to rapidly raise this sunken ship.

The office approved his request, and put up a notice in various places looking for those who could pull up a ship. It was posted on October 21.
