As soon she knew Saigo was on the city Naishi prepared to flee, but her sister was angered with the cowardice, and pressed her to accept the duel. Naishi offered the local magistrates to explain all behind the Opium War if she was protected. She was moved to the Magistrate Residence and signed a confession describing the conspiracy in detail.
