My uncle, who was beaten by the Father of Waterwheels, would approach, O Excellency," he said, "and there are others on the bank.
Farag's uncle, now Sheikh of the village, spoke: "It is written in this book, Excellency, that the beatings whereby we hold our lands are all valueless.
By whose order are we ordered to slay you, O Excellency Our Governor?
Melik-meid the First was lamed by the thorns on the day when Our Excellency fell thrice.
No--no, O Excellency Our Governor, we will not harm a hair on the head of the afflicted of God.
O Excellency," said the smooth voice of Farag, laying the Field and Country Life square on the table, "is the afflicted of God who resembles Bigglebai one with the man whom the Inspector met in the great house in England, and to whom he told the tale of the Mudir's Cranes?
I have often heard the Inspector tell the tale to ,Our Excellency at feeding-time in the kennels; but since I am in the Government service I have never told it to my people.
The afflicted of God is the guest of The Excellency Our Governor.
Yes, but he is an Englishman, and doubtless of influence, or Our Excellency would not entertain him.
The Excellency Our Governor entertains him that he may make sport.
Upon his arrival, His Highness was welcomed by His Excellency
Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Minister for Tolerance and Her Excellency
Reem Ebrahim Al-Hashimi, Cabinet Member and Minister of State for International Cooperation.
