From the story The Land of the Dead

A company of the gods drew the Boat along the ghostly River of Death with golden towing-ropes; the portals of the Duat were flung wide, and they entered the First Region between the six serpents who were curled on either side. And in the great Boat of Ra journeyed the Kas of all those who had died that day and were on their way to the Judgement Hall of Osiris.
