drones, called Fakiers, who contribute as much as they can to debauch 

the sex, under a pretence of superior sanctity. These hypocritical 

saints, like some of the ridiculous sects which formerly existed in 

Europe, wear no clothes; considering them only as proper appendages to 

sinners, who are ashamed, because they are sensible of guilt; while 

they, being free from every stain of pollution, have no shame to cover. 

In this original state of nature, these idle and pretended devotees, 

assemble together sometimes in armies of ten or twelve thousand, and 

under a pretence of going in pilgrimage to certain temples, like locusts 

devour every thing on their way; the men flying before them, and 

carrying all that they can out of the reach of their depredations; while 

the women, not in the least afraid of a naked army of lusty saints, 

throw themselves in their way, or remain quietly at home to receive 

them. 

 

It has long been an opinion, well established all over India, that there 

is not in nature so powerful a remedy for removing the sterility of 

women, as the prayers of these sturdy naked saints. On this account, 

barren women constantly apply to them for assistance; which when the 

good natured Fakier has an indication to grant, he leaves his slipper, 

or his staff at the door of the lady's apartment with whom he is 

praying; a symbol so sacred, that it effectually prevents any one from 

violating the secrecy of their devotion; but should he forget this 

signal, and at the same time be distant from the protection of his 

brethren, a sound drubbing is frequently the reward of his pious 

endeavors. But though they venture sometimes in Hindostan, to treat a 

Fakier in this unholy manner, in other parts of Asia and Africa, such is 

the veneration in which these lusty saints are held, that they not only 

have access when they please, to perform private devotions with barren 

women, but are accounted so holy, that they may at any time, in public 

or private, confer a personal favor upon a woman, without bringing upon 

her either shame or guilt; and no woman dare refuse to gratify their 

passion. Nor indeed, has any one an inclination of this kind; because 

she, upon whom this personal favor has been conferred, is considered by 

herself, and by all the people, as having been sanctified and made more 

holy by the action. 

 

So much concerning the conduct of the Fakiers in debauching women, seems 

certain. But it is by travellers further related, that wherever they 

find a woman who is exceedingly handsome, they carry her off privately
