"The whole place was crawling with myriads of hungry fleas, many of which we carried off with us. Firewood, thatch, even lumps of clay for making pots [had all been] removed. Even the great wood drums had been dragged off somewhere, and the punishment we were able to inflict by burning what was left was very small indeed."'
