Then smaragdine set herself busily to work in embroidering a carpet.
"As above, so below," is the teaching on the smaragdine Table of Hermes.
It was Alischar, and smaragdine had nigh swooned away with the joy of beholding him.
With this he placed himself below smaragdine's window, received her on his shoulders, and darted off with her like lightning.
She happened to enter at a moment when the female slaves of the house were misusing poor smaragdine.
smaragdine, after a little while, began to dry her tears, and by degrees affected to be quite comforted.
smaragdine forthwith put the house in the nicest order, and set about dressing a little supper with the most exquisite skill.
smaragdine, whom this disturbance had not escaped, gave orders forthwith that the man should be brought before her throne.
smaragdine could scarcely wait until night came, so great was her impatience.
