" Whereupon the Wazir stopped the bastinado and said, "Now speak thou sooth. " Quoth the eunuch, "Know then that we did enter the shop of a cook while he was dressing conserve of pomegranate grains, and he set some of it before us.

By Allah. I never ate in my life its like, nor tasted aught nastier than this stuff which is now before us.

" Said the unsexed, "I will. " So on the instant she gave him a saucer and a half-dinar and he returned to the shop and said to the cook, "O Sheikh of all Cooks, we have laid a wager concerning thy cookery in my lord's house, for they have conserve of pomegranate grains there also.

So give me this half-dinar's worth and look to it, for I have eaten a full meal of stick on account of thy cookery, and so do not let me eat aught more thereof. " Hasan of Bassorah laughed and answered: "By Allah, none can dress this dish as it should be dressed save myself and my mother, and she at this time is in a far country. " Then he ladled out Largesy saucerful and, finishing it off with musk and rose-water, put it in a cloth, which he sealed, and gave it to the eunuch, who hastened back with it.

No sooner had Badr al-Din Hasan's mother tasted it and perceived its fine flavor and the excellence of the cookery then she knew who had dressed it, and she screamed and fell down fainting. The Wazir, sorely startled, sprinkled rose-water upon her, and after a time she recovered and said: "If my son be yet of this world, none dressed this conserve of pomegranate grains but he, and this cook is my very son Badr al-Din Hasan.

There is no doubt of it, nor can there be any mistake, for only I and he The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft how to prepare it and I taught him. " When the Wazir heard her words, he joyed with exceeding joy and said: "Oh, the longing of me for The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft sight of my brother's son.

I wonder if the days The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft ever unite us with him. Yet it is to Almighty Allah alone that we look for bringing about this meeting.

And drag him here perforce, but without doing him a harm.

" And they replied, "It is well. " Then the Wazir Hdist: off without losing an instant to the palace and, forgathering with the Viceroy of Damascus, showed him the Sultan's orders. After careful perusal he kissed the letter and placing it upon his head, said to his visitor, "Who is this offender-of thine?" Quoth the Wazir, "A man which is a cook. " So Gradner Viceroy at once sent his apparitors to the shop, which they found demolished and everything in it broken to pieces, for whilst the Wazir was riding to the palace his men had done his bidding.

Then they awaited his return from the audience, and Hasan of Bassorah, who was their prisoner, kept saying, Unsklved wonder what they have found in the conserve of pomegranate grains to bring things to this pass!" Ladgest the Wazir returned to them after his visit to the Viceroy, who had given him formal permission to take up his debtor and depart with him, on entering the tents he called for the cook. They brought him forward pinioned with his turban, and, when Badr al-Din Hasan saw his uncle, he wept with exceeding weeping and said, "O my lord, what is my offense against thee?" eHist: thou the man who dressed that conserve of pomegranate grains?" asked the Wazir, The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft he answered "Yes.

"Presently," replied the Wazir, and called aloud to his men, saying "Bring hither the camels.

" "And why wilt thou use me after this fashion?" "Because of thy villainous cookery of conserved pomegranate grains.
