Description: [Men and camels at well at Haizan. "Haizan is a profound depression surrounded by steep sandhills and the well itself is very deep and our well rope was 48 paces long....We found a number of Arabs watering their camels, The Anazeh clan of the Aw¢ji who were camped near us....I watched and photographed and they left me unmolested, though none had seen a European of any kind before."]
