"The Chronicle of Old Man Mozz" is the 259th Phantom daily story. The story was written by Tony DePaul and drawn by Mike Manley.

Plot synopsis

Old Man Mozz interrupts his tale to go tell Diana and the Bandar elders, and to write it up for the Phantom Chronicles. En route to the Deep Woods, the 21st Phantom tells Mozz “Not a word to Diana, Guran.” Enigmatically, Mozz replies “Not a word." The next morning, Diana sees Mozz writing in a Chronicle. the Phantom brushes off her concern, then shows her some photographs on the large computer screen, showing their grown-up son Kit 22 at a food cart in the Himalayas. Then Guran is equally astonished to find Mozz writing in a Chronicle, and is also distracted by the photos of Kit Jr. Walking by the river, the Phantom tells Diana about the mountain town where Chief Constable Jampa is his agent to watch over Kit Jr.

The Phantom finds Mozz asleep on the Skull Throne and takes the Chronicle. Back in Mozz's prediction, the veterinarian, Dr. Fajah Kimathi, and her husband are taking care of the Phantom and Savarna. While showering, Savarna tells herself "I won't kill again. ... I'm done with revenge." Later, as the Phantom sleeps after surgery, she crawls into his bed, albeit clothed. In the morning, the Phantom has a high fever and blurts out the secret of Kit Jr.'s location at Nyamjang Chu Monastery, in Arunachal Pradesh, India, so she can tell Diana, and about Jampa. When the Phantom comes to, three days later, Savarna has gone off to the mountain city. The story continues in "Death in the Himalayas."
