So much for the king’s recreations. We will now turn to more serious matters. That any person might be able to speak to him on business of importance, Echebar appeared twice daily in public, and gave audience to all classes of his subjects. For this purpose he made use of two large halls of his palace, in each of which was placed on a raised dais a splendid and costly throne. To the first of these halls all his subjects had access, and there he listened to all who sought speech with him, But to the second none was admitted but the captains and great nobles of his kingdom, and the ambassadors who came from foreign kings to confer with him on affairs of importance.
His Majesty entrusted his second son to them that they might teach him Portuguese, and to read and write after the European style, at the same time instructing him in the mysteries of the Christian faith. It may here be mentioned that in the year 1582, when these Fathers were at his court, Echebar had three sons and two daughters. The eldest son, who has since succeeded him on the throne, was then about 17 or 18 years of age. 2 His proper name was Scieco [Shaikhu]; but he was always known as Sciecogio, the word Gio [ji] being added as a title of honour, just as in certain parts of Europe the word Dom is placed before the names of persons of rank or distinction.
Like them, he was influenced by both religious and political motives, and the former were quite as strong and real in his case as in theirs. In his case, too, it may confidently be said, that if all political inducement had been lacking, he would still have invited the Fathers to his court. The Missions, however, did offer him political advantages, and he naturally welcomed them none the less on that account. Chief amongst these were the opportunities, or excuses, which they afforded him of sending letters and farmans to Goa, the bearers of which were able to bring him much useful intelligence regarding the state of affairs in the Portuguese settle-ments, towards which he had long been casting covetous eyes.
