Being prevented yesterday in meeting by reason of the fast day, we met to-day all the morning.
The average speed, allowing for changing horses, was about ten miles an hour on the fast day coaches.
During the singing in the chapel on the fast day Barbara had waited vainly for a word of appreciation from the Emperor.
He looked in grave despair, but she knew that he was really pleased that she kept the fast day.
He himself is as long as Shivoh oser be-Tamuz, and he had to have a misfortune just on the fast day.
Forgotten the torturing heat, forgotten the hunger and thirst of the fast day!
