I must give you one or two of the answers that fell to my share. I asked whether Alexander was bald, and having sealed it publicly with great care, got a night oracle in reply :
Sabardalachu malach Attis was not he.
Another time I did up the same question-What was Homer's birthplace ?-in two packets given in under different names. My servant misled him by saying, when asked what he came for, a cure for lung trouble ; so the answer to one packet was :

I laid a good many traps of this kind for him; here is another. I asked only one question, but wrote outside the packet in the usual form, So-and-so's eight Queries, giving a fictitious name and sending the eight shillings.
