But, Wu Zixu actually has the feeling but is depressed, he will expect Wu Wang arrogant extravagant not to guard against Yuewanggoujian and Fan Li, the country will sooner or later perish.

    He exhorts under advance finishes many lunar new year’s cakes by the glutinous rice, and burying under city wall. He enjoins the side to accompany densely: after “I died, if the country suffers disaster, the people hunger does not have the food, may (Suzhou one of 6 main city gates) under the city dig three feet toward the gate to eat.”
