At the end of this history, aladin ventured to add some reflections of his own.
After having ended his story aladin kept a respectful silence.
At that instant aladin fell at the feet of the monarch, with his face on the ground, and kissed his robe.
aladin, as yet young and inexperienced, drawn on by his valour, was soon surrounded and made prisoner.
In short, he decided every affair of importance, by submitting it to the sagacity of the young aladin.
An interest which he felt very strongly made him regard with pleasure the progress both of the young aladin's mind and body.
The seventh day had just appeared since the condemnation of the young aladin had been so often deferred.
But aladin saw nothing; he only sought repose, and having found a sofa, he threw himself upon it and fell asleep.
aladin having thus finished the history of the merchant, addressed himself directly to Bohetzad.
At the noise which was made around the sofa aladin awoke, surprised and astonished at his situation.
