This time it was the palace servants - the cooks and scullions, the bakers and sweepers, the 'cafe-jis' and 'chibouk-jis', the nondescript hangers-on and all the rag-tag and bob-tail of an Oriental royal household.

They were a pitiful sight as they shuffled along between the two lines of soldiers that guarded them, dejected, frightened, hang-dog-looking creatures."
