* For I was.
The office of cup-bearer was one of great trust, honour, and
emolument, in the Persian court. To be in such a place of
trust he must have been in the king's confidence; for no
eastern potentate would have a cup-bearer to whom he could not
trust his life, poison being often administered in that way.
It was an office much desired, because it gave access to the
king in those seasons of hilarity when men are most disposed
to grant favours.
