Overview

And you should if you please refuse Till the conversion of the Jews.
The reader of John Evelyn's History of Sabatai Sevi, The Pretended Messiah of the Jewes or of the History of the Three Late Famous Impostors (1669) in which it is the most significant part, discovers a fascinating, if unoriginal, addition to the work of the great diarist and dilettante, the amateur student of engraving and trees--and smoke. Evelyn's work was almost totally derived from the account of Sir Paul Rycaut, who was from 1661 secretary (and later consul) for the Levant mercantile company in Smyrna. Rycaut was in fact responsible for what first-hand reporting there is in the History, and Evelyn's book preceded by only eleven years Rycaut's History of the Turkish Empire 1623-1677, where the story first appeared under the author's own name.

A grey-colored tom with bright blue eyes with scraches all over and an open gash stumbles into camp. "The dogs! They almost got me!" He says just before his eyes close and he drops to tge ground. His blood turns the grass around him red..

They were cold hungry and scared. Squirrelpaw dug a small hole that was big enough for an apprentice and three kits. She led the other kits inside. Nightkit brought warm moss into the hole. Pearlkit brought two small mice into the hole. Brokenkit padded inside and fell asleep.

"I ask you to change your name. My DarkClan has been around since late 2013. We are still alive, so please change your name. Or I will resort to my other option." She grinned. "Silverfang." Then she swept her thin tail and padded out.
