Can you please translate this narration and is it authentic?

كانت صفية مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في سفر وكان ذلك يومها فأبطأت في المسير فاستقبلها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وهي تبكي وتقول حملتني على بعير بطيء، فجعل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يمسح بيديه عينيها ويسكتها



This is part of a longer narration recorded by Imam Nasai (rahimahullah) on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) through a reliable chain.

(As Sunanul Kubra, Hadith: 9117)



Sayyidah Safiyyah (radiyallahu ‘anha) was once on a journey with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). That day happened to be her turn. She was lagging behind on the journey. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) went to her and found her crying. She said, ‘You mounted me on a sluggish camel.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then wiped her eyes with his hands and pacified her…

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
