Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1865 Excerpt: ...entered into the pleasure of catching others. The rascals so much enjoyed entrapping their friends that I lost all pity for them.

The poor feellaheen dropped on their knees and begged for mercy. Abd-el-Atti explained to them what was wanted of them, and their faces lit up with delight, while the scoun 250 KOUM OMBOS. Mr. and Mrs. Martin, had left Es Siout a day before us, and where somewhere hereabout. Early the next morning we were under the high bluff on which stands the temple of Koum Ombos, and we climbed the hill before breakfast, all four of us, to see the ruins and the view up the river.
