paragraph 212

One day, when Magnus Khan was travelling near a religious Order, the prelate of the Order came to meet him, and brought with him holy water and sprinkles it on Magnus Khan, and if the prelate have a cross, the king kneels before the cross, and takes the chaplet from his head; and when he sees that pious folk coming to him he tells his lords and the honourable people who are with him to make way for them to him; and whatsoever fruit this congregation hath, they give the number eleven of this fruit to him in a silver dish, and they give as many to his wife or to his son as an honour.
