Was it really about islands named Quemoy and matsu or the missile gap?
In his row with matsu he had forgotten the boy; forgotten that he was to carry him his dinner and give him his medicine.
matsu, however, had sufficient presence of mind to throw her basket of flowers at the snake, which at once crawled away.
This constant warfare with matsu was one of the few diversions the camp afforded, and every man made much of it.

Toward evening the plaintive notes which matsu mushi made at intervals made me feel unusually lonesome.
So she locked O matsu in a dark dungeon and gave her neither food nor drink.
