Example text

Already, at three o'clock in the 1 Milk. Curd. 29 BASRAH TO ZOBER AND KUWEIT afternoon, I had enquired of one of my Arabs how far it was to Kuweit. 'An hour's ride' he answered. Two hours later I repeated the question. 'An hour' was again the answer. When two hours on, I put the same question and got the same reply, I gave up further enquiry, profoundly distrusting the Arabs' estimate of time. We reach the first houses of Kuweit between eight and nine at night. On the edge of the town not a human being is to be seen.

Shakespear of Kuweit and last but not least to the Expedition Committee, always helpful and practical and to its admirable Chairman, Vice-Admiral A.

Through the goodwill of the Ottoman Turkish Government, permission was obtained to journey in el Hasa, which in ordinary circumstances is closed to Europeans.
