The dwarf quitted the room, and Ani went into an airy hall, in which his luxurious meal was laid out, consisting of many dishes prepared with special care. His appetite was gone, but he tasted of every dish, and gave the steward, who attended on him, his opinion of each.

All through that day she could neither eat nor drink, but lay with closed eyes on her couch, while her steward who had soon learnt what a terrible share his former master had taken in the incendiarism, and who now gave up his lady's cause for lost sought every where for the high-priest Ameni; but as he was among the persons nearest to the king it was impossible to see him that day, and it was not till the next morning that he was able to speak with him.
