Description

Excerpt from L. W. L. Life: May, 1920 So it was that when we passed through the narrow alley-ways of Sana we were steadily besieged by several hundred beggars - Alms, for the love of Allah, alms There was one rather majestic looking Arabian, however, who, although plainly in want, carried himself with an air of one of noble birth. He approached us and, with a dignified bow, out of courtesy to my wife, asked permission to speak to us for a moment. As it was impossible to hear above the wail of the mob, he led us to a room in a rather tumbled down shanty. He informed us, in English quite surprising to us, that he had been the ash-sha'ir or the knowing man of his city. I was reduced to want and poverty, he said, by the Turks and was compelled to seek a living in a more material way. We were about to give him a few coins when he rose to his full and imposing height and said that he accepted no charity. He said, however, that he would tell us of our past, present, or future and we could then recompense him as we thought best. As it had been many years since I graduated from lick-wilmerding, I thought I would test his ability by asking him to give me the history of the June Twenty Class.
