Mahomet “inspired with a dove?—Was,” 1 HENRY VI., i. 2. 140. “Mahomet had a dove ‘which he used to feed with wheat out of his ear; which dove, when it was hungry, lighted on Mahomet's shoulder, and thrust its bill in to find its breakfast; Mahomet persuading the rude and simple Arabians that it was the Holy Ghost that gave him advice.’ See Sir Walter Raleigh's History of the World, Book i. Part 1, ch. vi.; Life of Mahomet by Dr. Prideaux” (GREY) .
