I have not. Though Moses was their ruler, under God, yet, so far from oppressing them, he had not imposed the smallest tax, nor taken, as a present, so much as an ass from one of them. The common present that is now made to the great, in these countries, is a horse; but there is reason to believe, that an ass might formerly have answered the same purpose. If it is a visit of ceremony from a barshaw, says Dr. Russell, or other person in power, a fine horse, sometimes with furniture, or some such valuable present, it made to him at his departure. As asses were esteemed no dishonourable beasts for the saddle, Sr. J. Chardin, in his MS., supposes, that when Samuel disclaimed having taken the ass of any one, he is to be understood of not having taken any ass for his riding. In the same light, he considers this similar declaration of Moses. His reason is asses being then esteemed very honourable creatures for riding on as they are at this very time in Persia, being rode with saddles.
