of the latter at Ras-al-Khaimah as in the highest degree dangerous to
his interests. Saiyid Sa'id also expressed an opinion that Ibrahim
Pasha would be unable to reply to the British proposals without
a reference to his father, the Viceroy of Egypt, and that Captain
Sadleir's mission could not be accomplished before the time fixed for
the expedition, unless the latter were postponed ; in both of these respects
his anticipations were remarkably confirmed by the event.
On his journey from Masqat to Bushehr, Captain Sadleir was much
delayed by contrary winds ; nor did he reach Qatif, where his attempts
to open communication with Ibrahim Pasha began, until the 21st
of June. He found the credit of the Egyptians already gone and then-
short-lived occupation of Eastern Arabia practically at an end ; but he
still considered it his duty to convey his despatches to their destination.
From Hofuf, which he reached on the 11th of July, he accompanied the dts-
organised and retreating Egyptian forces by Dara'iyah and Shaqrah to
Rass in Qasim, where he arrived on the 26th of August, oni\ to leain

return to the Persian Gulf Historically used by the British to refer to the sea area between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Often referred to as The Gulf or the Arabian Gulf. ; and he therefore pushed on with t' e
Egyptians to Madinah, in the environs of which he arrived on the 6
of September, his horse falling down exhausted just as he reached he
last halting place. > . , .
On the 8th of September Captain Sadleir obtained an m oivuw

Part 1A contains an 'Introduction', 'Table of Chapters, Annexures, Appendices and Genealogical Trees' and 'Detailed Table of Contents'.

Often referred to as The Gulf or the Arabian Gulf. . The chapters are sub-divided into numbered periods according, for example, to the reign of a ruler or regime of a Viceroy, or are arbitrarily based on outstanding land-marks in the history of the region. Each period has been sub-divided into subject headings, each of which has been lettered. The annexures focus on a specific place or historical event.
