Book Description

As soon as I entered the tents a host of menials sprang forward, some to ease me of my armour, some to offer me refreshments, some with hookahs, attar of roses (in great quart bottles), and the thousand delicacies of Eastern life. I motioned them away. ""I will wear my armour,"" said I; ""I shall go forth to-night. Carry my duty to the princess, and say I grieve that to-night I have not the time to see her.
