MOSLEMS AND THE CIALTPISATE, [To THE EDITOR OF THE "
SPECITaTOR."] Soz,—We have been all well-nigh "cleared" to death for a year or more past with the Moslem and his Caliphate. I hear that as soon as the Aga Khan got back to Bombay he attended some demonstration, he being a Khojah, and neither Sunni nor Shi'ah. By the way, do you suppose that any of these great Moslem agitators or delegates ever read the Third Story of the First Day of Boccac,cio's Decameron, and the clever answer that Melchizedek, a Jew, gave to Saladin, when the great Sultan asked him which of the laws of God, the Jewish, the Saracen, or the Christian, was the best? The Prelates of Islam would do well to have that story read in all mosques until further notice.—I am, Sir, &c., A. C. YAT.E. Beckbury Hall, Shifnal.
