WILL OF THE GODS ~ 1933.04.23
The jungle rang with Tarzan's victory cry -- the wild cry of the bull ape a the kill -- as numa lay dead at his feet. deep in the jungle the horde heard the shout of their king and came hastening to him. Tarzan meanwhile had swung into the tree where he had -- for her own safety -- left Nikotris tied. When the tribe had gathered, Tarzan instructed them that Nikotris was his she-ape, and it meant death to anyone who touched her. 

He leaped from the tree with Nikotris in his arms and landed in the midst of the tribe. Not pausing, he raced for water to revive the unconscious princess. As he came to the river a great shout of joy went up from the barge. The Egyptians thought the gods had answered their prayers in sending Tarzan and the apes back to them. But when Tarzan had delivered the princess to her handmaidens, he turned to go. Desperately the Egyptians pleaded with him to stay, but he understood no word.

After her physician had revived her, the princess demanded to be led to the ape-man. She clung to him and said, "It is the command of the gods that you remain with us always. Our people need you. The gods have spoken."
