This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Hisham with the same chain of transmitters, and the words are: She (Sauda) was a woman who looked to be significant amongst the people (so far as the bulk of her) body was concerned. The rest of the hadith is the same.
وَحَدَّثَنَاهُ أَبُو كُرَيْبٍ، حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ نُمَيْرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامٌ، بِهَذَا الإِسْنَادِ وَقَالَ وَكَانَتِ
امْرَأَةً يَفْرَعُ النَّاسَ جِسْمُهَا ‏.‏ قَالَ وَإِنَّهُ لَيَتَعَشَّى ‏.‏
وَحَدَّثَنِيهِ سُوَيْدُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُسْهِرٍ، عَنْ هِشَامٍ، بِهَذَا الإِسْنَادِ ‏.‏
