AND ANALYSIS.

defended the fort of Yabrin, the fort itself, deemed impreg
nable, held out against him. In spite, however, of the petty
wars to which this imprudent enterprise gave rise between
the el-Ghafiry and the allies of the Al-Bu-Said, Sultan
deemed the country sufficiently tranquil to permit his per
formance of the Hijj. He accordingly set out for Mekkah,
a.d . 1803, accompanied by a train of 'Omany notables.
During his absence, his nephew Bedr, the son of his de

mander, Muhammad-bin-H&med. It became evident now
that the Wahhabis were bent on further conquest, and that
nothing less than a combined effort on the part of the 'Oma-
nis could arrest their onward progress. In this emergency
Sultan took counsel of the el-1 aaruby governor of Nakhl,
who advised him to assemble all the chiefs of Oman to a
conference on the subject. The council, which was held at
Barkah, was attended by Sultan's brothers, 1 alib and Mu
hammad, two of his nephews, Ahmed the son of the reigning
Imam, and other prominent members of the Al-Bu-baid,
besides several representatives of the el-\ aarubah and other
'Omany tribes. Sultan opened the proceedings by briefly
