Excerpt from The Arabian Nights Entertainments, Carefully Revised and Occasionally Corrected From the Arabic, Vol. 3 of 6: To Which Is Added, a Selection of New Tales
They appeared, followed by twenty black eunuchs all handsomely clothed, with cimeters by their sides, and gold belts of four inches broad. As soon as they perceived the favourite Schemselnihar at a di stance, they made her a profound reverence, which she returned them from her throne. When they approached, she arose and went to meet Mesrour, who advanced first; she asked what news he brought? He answered, Madam, the commander of the faithful has sent me to signify that he cannot'live longer without seeing you; he designs to do himself that pleasure this night, and I am come to give you notice, that you may be ready to receive him. He hopes, madam, that you will receive him with as much pleasure as he feels impatience to see you.
