Transcription:
These boys seem to know a little of every European language and are accustomed to tell one that the donkey bears a name suggestive of his home. My donkey at Cairo was named Yankee Doodle, Rosa Neal, at Karnak it was Kalamazoo. Their grammar is sometimes defective for instance the remark of boy at Luxor. "Luce good donkey, why his mother my wife not come?" Their treatment of their beast is justified only by the Arab proverb "The stick came down from heaven!"- they are hardy and will run sometimes 17-20 miles.
