Note 072
From Chapter 50 of the Decline & Fall

I am not at leisure to pursue the fables or conjectures which name the strangers accused or suspected by the infidels of Mecca (Koran, c. 16, p. 223, c. 35, p. 297, with Sale's Remarks. Prideaux's Life of Mahomet, p. 22 - 27. Gagnier, Not. ad Abulfed. p. 11, 74. Maracci, tom. ii. p. 400.). Even Prideaux has observed, that the transaction must have been secret, and that the scene lay in the heart of Arabia.
