The natives are on the phones again & Abdul Moolah is back again to attend to any business for the Omdah of Hassan Pasha & I am glad he is back again as he does all my washing (or his wife does) & does it better than any I have seen he also does any odd jobs & expects no Baksheesh. he is the only native I have met who does not ask for any
