Dowie found at Cairo a small boy named Mahomet Abdul Rasull from Shellal whose uncle had left him alone in Cairo and gone to Alexandria. The boy wanted to go home and we consented to take him. Later we found that he could read and write Arabic and was very smart and quick to learn -
Abdallah put in an appearance one day only and then took to his bed where he stayed in the dark until tonight when it was decided to send him home as far as Luxor with Joe who went on the night train
