We passed the night in the village of Esseeyah, where Sheikh Nasr had recently built a dwelling-house.
We halted where there was a grove on one side of the road and a dwelling-house on the other.
Crossing to the dwelling-house, we were shown into a parlour, where our young friends shortly came to us.
We had first our own dwelling-house to get up, and then the huts for the men.
The dwelling-house subsequently presented a very wrecked appearance.
There was a small cottage on the farm, not far from the dwelling-house.
First is a youth of eighteen, condemned for stealing in a dwelling-house goods valued above five pounds.
The dwelling-house is costly and the furnishings are expensive.
A few plants, parched and straggling, stood in pots and tin cans around the door of the dwelling-house.
Finally, the dwelling-house must be used by the owner, and cannot be let to another.
