Page ix - In order to prepare a suitable entertainment for his illustrious guest and his attendants, he had no other resource than to cause his favourite horse to be killed and roasted on the occasion. This was accordingly done ; and after the feast the ambassador stated his master's wish. ' It is too late,' replied Hatim; ' the horse has been killed for our repast.
