Pitts gives a similar account of the mode of honouring a
person who turns a Mohammedan, at Algiers: "The apostate is
to get on a stately steed, with a rich saddle and fine
trappings: he is also richly habited, and has a turban on his
head, but nothing of this is to be called his own; only there
are given him about two or three yards of broad cloth, which
is laid before him on the saddle. The horse, with him on his
back, is led all round the city, which he is several hours in
doing. The apostate is attended with drums and other music,
and twenty or thirty serjeants. They march in order on each
side of the horse, with naked swords in their hands. The
crier goes before, with a loud voice giving thanks to God for
the proselyte that is made."
