Thurs 26. [26 January 1911] Cold. Went with Fattuh into the bazaar
and saw the tomb of Saladin. It is now by the tomb of the vezir 'Imad
ed Dualeh has some good old woodwork and there are some good
tiles. The dome on squinches I should say is old. So to the bank and
home. The bazaar full of Hajjis from all parts buying clothes. Tried to
see the Mahmal procession but went too early and too late. Then
down to call on the Perrins. After which I went to Basam. Muhammad
en Na'man[?] of Kebeisah [Kubaysah] is going with us and we start
Monday. Dined with Selim.
