Excerpt from Letters From the Old World, Vol. 2 of 2

Lie quiet until thy Tadmor's throne shall be abdicated by this usurper, who, seven years hence, is to ascend that of the new-jerusalem as the bride of a certain Nazarene who made no little none in the worl... d be fore thy time, and who, on his second advent, is to become in reality king of the Jews, and is to share his throne with the present desert queen. At least, so says Lady Hester Stanhope; and the yet unbroken and unbridled steeds on which she and her expected bridegroom are to make their triumphal entry into the city of David, are now pampered by Queen Hester for the occasion.
