Notes
Source note: From
Content: "After being compelled, by the violence of his enemies, to quit Medina [i.e. Mecca], the prophet for three days remained hid in a solitary cave on Mount Thor. At the end of that time he secretly departed with a single companion, the faithful Abu Beker. Urging their camels hastily over the desert, they arrived in safely at the strong and friendly city of Medina. This memorable Flight, from which all Moslem nations date their chronology, occurred in the 622d year of the Christian era."--printed on border.
