Wed 2 [2 April 1902] Very stormy Mr M. [Monaghan] did not get off.
Violent rain and hail all morning. Arabic - Abu Nimrud told me most
interesting tales about the battle between the Sukhur and the 'Anazeh
and the mission of the former to the 'Adwan with the piece of black
cloth round his horse's neck and of the 2 daughters of the 'Adwan
Sheikh who married Zoktan of the Sukhur, Zohtan of the Anazeh and
of Fa'is and his receiving a whole tent from the Sheikh of Ma'an. He
stayed till 11. After lunch I shopped. Then called on Miss Gips [i.e.
Gipps] and Countess Denison and Miss Ramsey called on me.
Captain Gaisford turned up at dinner and we had an amusing talk. He
is buying horses. Persian as usual.
