80 << ' Após a morte de Emir, Dorner partiu para uma viagem de anos. Eu o conheci no natal de 1935, e desde então fiquei maravilhado com os álbuns de fotografias e desenhos que éle não cansava de mostrar às crianças e ao meu pai. Era um colossal arquivo de imagens, com rotas de viagens e mapas minuciosos traçados com paciência e esmero. Sempre que recebia elogios e estímulos, observava com humildade: "Há erros clamorosos nesta ilustração de aventuras, mas creio que todo viajante que procura o desconhecido convive com a hipótese feliz de cometer enganos".

Aqui reina uma forma estranha de escravidão — opinava Dorner. — A humilhação e a ameaça são o açoite; a comida e a integração ilusória à família do senhor são as correntes e golilhas. Havia alguma verdade nesta sentença. Eu notava um esforço da parte de Emilie para manter acesa á chama de uma relação cordial com Anastácia Socorro. Às vezes bordavam e costuravam juntas, na sala; e ambas conversavam sobre um passado e lugar distantes, e essas conversas atraiam minha atenção. Permanecia horas ao lado das duas mulheres, magnetizado pelo desenho dourado gravado no corpo vítreo do narguilé, nas contas de cor carmesim que formavam volutas ou caracóis semi-imersos no líquido nacarado, e no bico de madeira que terminava num orifício delicado, como se fossem lábios preparados para um beijo.

Da sua vida pouco sabíamos, e Anastácia Socorro emudecia toda vez que lhe pediam informações a respeito do tio. Dorner, não sei como, descobriu que Lobato falava sem embaraço o nhengatu, e que em tempos passados tinha sido um orador famoso, desses que ao abrir a boca faz o mundo à sua volta prestar atenção. Logo que chegou em Manaus era conhecido por Tacumã, seu verdadeiro nome, e era famoso por ser um grande vidente. Na cidade ele era procurado sempre que uma criança se desgarrava dos pais e se perdia nos meandros, becos e nas ruelas dos bairros mais pobres invadidos pelas águas dos igarapés.
