It may be eafily fappofed that all thofe who accompanied the prince were very rich in glory and Wealth, as well by the ranjbras of their prifoners, as by the quantities of gold and liver plate, rich jewels, and trunks fluffed full of belts that were weighty from their gold and filver ornaments, and furred mantles.
