Satisfied with his victory, Jenghiz again directed his forces against hia.
The dominions of the king of hia, a vassal of the Kin emperor, were invaded and his power overthrown.

He bestowed the forfeited estates on the most eminent of hia captains, and established funds for the payment of his soldiers.
I confess that I pitied him from my heart, as I thought of hia wasted talents, of the months of comradeship we had spent together.
