Great was the consternation at the Court of the Ameer when our vakeel unfolded the message with which he was charged.
Upon the vakeel's (Saati) advancing to seize him, there was a general mutiny.
Tells me, confidentially, that he has practised as a "vakeel" (whatever that is) in some small country town in Bengal.
Did he ever state it to the Rajah, or did he call his vakeel before the Council to answer the charge?
The evening arrived, and my vakeel, with his usual cunning, came to ask me whether I intended to start tomorrow.
Saati discovered another plot, his men having been won over by Mahomet Her, the vakeel of Chenooda, another trader.
Roy Rada Churn pleaded his privilege as the vakeel or representative of a sovereign prince.
Hardly were we seated in our hut when my vakeel announced that Kamrasi had arrived to pay me a visit.
After some days the absconded guide, Rabonga, appeared with a number of men, but without either my vakeel or Yaseen.
At night several men were absent, and were with difficulty brought from the town by the vakeel.
