Due to his parents' concern about his education, the author and his brother begin studying English and Malay as well as algebra both at home and in a developing school system. The chapter goes on to detail the slow return to “normalcy” in Surabaja, as the family begins to eat well again and forge new friendships. While the author befriends a boy named Hans, his father receives news that his parents have died. Meanwhile, the revolutionaries gradually pacify as the Dutch attempt to retake the surrounding territory.
