Saladin. Prince of Chivalry
page 125

" I have seen him," said Saladin, " and that is very different from hearing of him. Go to this man and ask him for a safe conduct, and pray him not to punish me for my past errors." Be this report true or not, the fact is Saladin came back from his campaign against the Assassins within a month of his penetration into their territory without having achieved his purpose to root them out. In fact, they remained as powerful and as sinister as ever, and continued for many a year to hold the surrounding princes, both Christian and Moslem, in terror of their works. Many a life was still to be taken by them, and their poisoned daggers might still be purchased for political or personal enmities. But Saladin was never molested again. However he had managed it, the fact remains that his enemies could no longer rely upon the aid of the Old Man of the Mountains.
