Zenora sigh'd, grasped my hand, and pressed her breast to mine all night." - spurned she attempts to poison Cleone, is tried and executed), a journey to Mecca, further wranglings with slavers before the return journey to Britain during which the ship captain threatens Cleone that "if she did not comply to be his wife. he would use her as his whore".
