After undergoing the business of yesterday and last night, I was not permitted to enjoy a moment respite, but was gone again the moment I arrived  at my room. Indeed, I had been so incessantly employed day and night that my horse was almost exhausted. For the moment she was put in the state she would lie down in order to rest her weary limbs. I declare I felt more for her more than for myself.
