The Khan, turning to his courtiers, told them: 'That counsel could not be too much valued which had saved the ...

Grey was as anxious as the rest; but officers of his rank seldom go aloft, and soon fall out of their catlike habits.

But with these torments not obtaining any positive answer, they hung him up by the wrists, giving him many blows and stripes under that intolerable pain and posture of body. Afterwards they cut off his nose and ears, and singed his face with ...
