obliged to assemble together, and take shelter, either on the rising 

grounds, or in the houses, which were raised upon piles, above the reach 

of the waters. Here, almost every employment being suspended, and the 

men and women long confined together, a thousand inducements, not to be 

found in a solitary state, would naturally prompt them to render 

themselves agreeable to each other. Hence their manners would begin, 

more early, to assume a softer polish, and more elegant refinement, than 

those of the other nations who surrounded them. 

 

The practice of confining women, instituted by jealousy, and maintained 

by unlawful power, was not adopted by the ancient Egyptians. This 

appears from the story of Pharaoh's daughter, who was going with her 

train of maids to bathe in the river, when she found Moses hid among the 

reeds. It is still more evident, from that of the wife of Potiphar, who, 

if she had been confined, could not have found the opportunities she 

did, to solicit Joseph to her adulterous embrace. 

 

The queens of Egypt had the greatest attention paid to them. They were 

more readily obeyed than the kings. It is also related, that the 

husbands were in their marriage-contracts, obliged to promise obedience 

to their wives; an obedience, which, in our modern times, we are often 

obliged to perform, though our wives entered into the promise. 

 

The behavior of Solomon to Pharaoh's daughter is a convincing proof that 

more honor and respect was paid to the Egyptian women, than to those of 

any other people. Solomon had many other wives besides this princess, 

and was married to several of them before her, which, according to the 

Jewish law, ought to have entitled them to a preference. But, 

notwithstanding this, we hear of no particular palace having been built 

for any of the others, nor of the worship of any of their gods having 

been introduced into Jerusalem. But a magnificent palace was erected for 

Pharaoh's daughter; and she was permitted, though expressly contrary to 

the laws of Israel, to worship the gods of her own country. 

 

 

 

 

MODERN EGYPTIAN WOMEN. 

 

The women of modern Egypt are far from being on so respectable a 

footing as they were in ancient times, or as the European women are at 

present. 

 

In Europe, women act parts of great consequence, and often reign 

sovereigns on the world's vast theatre. They influence manners and 

morals, and decide on the most important events. The fate of nations is 

frequently in their hands. 

 

How different is their situation in Egypt! There they are bound down by
