WIU.UM DÏ that between ourselves and the Emperor (Frederick) there hath *υ*ίίΛ7. been mutual love, and alliance, and perfect concord, from the time of the sultan, my father, (whom may God preserve and place in the glory of his brightness ;) and between you and the Emperor there is, as ye know, strife and warfare ; whence it is not fit that we should enter into any treaty with the Christians until we have previously had his advice and assent. W e have therefore written to our envoy at the imperial court upon the propositions made to us by the Pope's messenger, &c. . . . " This letter was written on the seventh of the month Maharan. Praise be to the one only God, and may his blessing rest upon our master Mahomet." * The year following, (A.D. 1247,) the Carizmians were annihilated ; they were cut up in detail by the Templars and Hospitallers, and were at last slain to α man. Their very name perished from the face of the earth, but the traces of their existence were long preserved in the rain and desolation they had spread around them.f The Holy Land, although happily freed from the destructive presence of these barbarians, had yet everything to fear from the powerful sultan of Egypt, with whom hostilities still continued ; and Brother William de Sonnac, the Grand Master of the Temple, for the purpose of stimulating the languid energies of the English nation, and reviving their holy zeal and enthusiasm in the cause of the Cross, despatched a distinguished Knight Templar to England, charged with the duty of presenting to king Henry the Third a magnificent crystal vase, containing a portion of the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, which had been poured forth upon the sacred soil of Palestine for the remission of the sins of all the faithful. * Litem Soldnni l&bylcwa* ad Papam miste, a quodam Calcinali ex Arabico trot.». lntav—Matt. Par. p. 711. τ Ibid, p. 7SS.
