At Parting, Bosari Assured Me Of His Inviolable Attachment To My Interest; And I Blessed My Good Stars, When I Left The Precincts Of The Town, And The Residence Of A Turkish Court, In Which I Found It More Difficult To Avoid Danger, Than Among The Wild Bedouins Of Nubia.

During my stay at Tayf, I had five or six interviews with the

[P.77] Pasha; and the following extracts from my journal will show the general result of what passed between us on those different occasions: -

Q. Sheikh Ibrahim, I hope you are well. A. Perfectly well, and most happy to have the honour of seeing you again. Q. You have travelled much since I saw you at Cairo. How far did you advance into the negro country?

To this question I replied, by giving a short account of my journey in Nubia.

Q. Tell me, how are the Mamelouks at Dongola?

I related what the reader will find in my Nubian Travels.

Q. I understand that you treated with two of the Mamelouk Beys at Ibrim; was it so?

The word treated (if the dragoman rightly translated the Turkish word), startled me very much; for the Pasha, while he was in Egypt, had heard that, on my journey towards Dongola, I had met two Mamelouk Beys at Derr; and as he still suspected that the English secretly favoured the Mamelouk interest, he probably thought that I had been the bearer of some message to them from government. I therefore assured him that my meeting with the two Beys was quite accidental that the unpleasant reception which I experienced at Mahass was on their account; and that I entertained fears of their designs against my life.
