Immediately his holiness, the patriarch, sent letters to the emeer Abdallah informing him of Asaad's escape, and requesting him to guard the roads of the Kesroan, and search the neighbourhood, if possibly Asaad might still be found lurking in that district.
Every day he used to ride to the horse-course; and when he returned, he sat to judge the people, and administered justice between the emeer and the poor man.
The emeer said to him: "How long a period doth it require?"
And the emeer said: "This is what occurred to my mind, and excellent is the advice."
He was acquainted with the Arabic language; wherefore, when he came to the Emeer Moosa, he saluted him; and the emeer returned his salutation, and treated him with honour.
"And how," said the emeer, "can we contrive to enter it, and divert ourselves with a view of its wonders?"
And the emeer said: "Draw near to him, and investigate his case: perhaps he will discover it, and perhaps thou wilt learn his history."
Then the king of the blacks said to the emeer: "Are ye of mankind, or of the genies?"
So the emeer said to him: "What hast thou seen, O Sheikh?"
The emeer answered: "As to us, we are of mankind; and as to you, there is no doubt but that ye are of the genies, because of your seclusion in this mountain that is separated from the world, and because of the greatness of your make."
