Excerpt from Modern Language Notes, Vol. 37: 1922

Two merchants, one of Egypt the other of Bagdad, become friends through business dealings. In the course of their transac tions the Bagdadian comes to Egypt, is received hospitably by the Egyptian and entertained for eight days. At the end of this time he falls sick, and is discovered by his anxious host to be in love. The good liest generously enquires if there is a damsel in the household whom he affects. All are made to pass in review before him - singers, dancers, daughters - but none please him. There remains only a certain noble maiden in the house, whom the merchant has long been educating for his own wife. She is without hesitation presented, and the sick man declares: Ea: hac est michi mors ct in here est michi uitaf Thereupon the un selfish master surrenders her to the friend, settles a marriage portion upon her, effects the union of the two, and allows them to depart for the husband's native city. In time the Egyptian falls into misfortune and is driven into exile. He wanders to the city and home of his friend. But in shame at his wretched condition withdraws to an old shrine nearby for the night. For a long time he meditates anxiously his sad plight. A murder is com mitted outside. The body is found. Searchers enter the shrine, find the Egyptian, and have his confession that he did the deed. He is tried and condemned to death. 3y chance his friend is in the crowd, recognizes him, and to save him from the impend ing fate confesses to the murder himself. The real felon, present tin the concourse, is struck by the devotion of the two friends, and comes forward and confesses. The Bagdadian honors his rocov ered friend. Shares his goods with him. And offers him a home for life. But the Egyptian, with the favor of fortune upon him once more. Returns to his native land.
