Note 088
From Chapter 65 of the Decline & Fall

This sketch of the Turkish education and discipline is chiefly borrowed from Ricaut's State of the Ottoman Empire, the Stato Militaire del'Imperio Ottomano of Count Marsigli (in Hava, 1732, in folio), and a description of the Seraglio, approved by Mr. Greaves himself, a curious traveller, and inserted in the second volume of his works.
