But All His Contrivances Were Vain; Oxford Disdained, And Rejected, And Insulted Him (Not Because He Represented A Swindling Community, But) Because That His Infantine Sermons Were Strictly Remembered Against Him; The Enterprise Failed.

{45} The rose-trees which I saw were all of the kind we call "damask"; they grow to an immense height and size.

{46} A dragoman never interprets in terms the courteous language of the East.

{47} A title signifying transcender or conqueror of Satalieh.

{48} Spelt "Attalia" and sometimes "Adalia" in English books and maps.

{49} While Lady Hester Stanhope lived, although numbers visited the convent, she almost invariably refused admittance to strangers. She assigned as a reason the use which M. de Lamartine had made of his interview. Mrs. T., who passed some weeks at Djouni, told me, that when Lady Hester read his account of this interview, she exclaimed, "It is all false; we did not converse together for more than five minutes; but no matter, no traveller hereafter shall betray or forge my conversation." The author of "Eothen," however, was her guest, and has given us an interesting account of his visit in his brilliant volume.
