The office said the brick was accompanied by a handwritten note, saying: “I have visited Wat Chaiyawatanaram. I took back home a brick, then I felt uneasy and became ill for no reason. I would like to send the brick back. I would like to apologise for my action that was committed out of my ignorance. Please be informed and accept my thanks [for help in returning the brick to its place]. PS: I enclose the joss stick and candle set for an apology rite.”
