The chances that portraits of daud and Saleh al-Kuwaiti will ever adorn a 200-shekel bill seem slim.
daud had not exaggerated matters; to clamber down the scarped sides was beyond the powers of man.
For a moment daud imagined that the belt lying before him was his to take away, if he had a mind to do so.
With what excitement we listened to daud's account of his wanderings can be imagined.
Moreover, he presented daud with a handsome inlaid knife, as a reward for his services.
daud confessed to us that he had no very high opinion of the Hindu astrologer.
Crossing the river by swimming, we moved north again, and soon hit off daud's old track, after which all was plain sailing.
Faris was to try his luck first; daud was to follow; then Sedjur, myself, and the Aeniza in succession.
In his irritation daud allowed himself to be led into hasty expressions.
Sedjur's mission had been successful, and with him rode daud and another of the Shammar.
