And yet the things had not been other, nor he himself other; but only the feelings of the relators.
The argument was opened on behalf of the relators by Mr. Gizzard Tobin.
The relators of this story of sultan Ibrahim were doubtless fully persuaded of the truth of it themselves.
Which of these relators has given us the real penalty annexed to this law by Solon, is scarce worth our inquiry.
Some of the stories the relators have learned through personal observation, while others have come to them indirectly.
A much more probable explanation is that the relators were either dreaming or deceived by clever legerdemain.
