36 TRAVELS IN EGYPT
On our right, we pasled by two villages
Neslet Asscherif, and Sau-Adne. These two villages are very
little considerable. Afterwards we got to
Bardis, a town, which has a pretty appearance. It is adorned with a mosque;
and it has, to the south, a calisch, which advances a good way within land, and
goes to Barasbura, to Ell Turaet, and to Ell Kebira, &c.
We had likewise on our right,
See chemp Ell-Mag a sch, Belliene, Bennier-Akaep, Schech Bereeck, Schenine, and
Plate1'16' Samhuud, These are so many villages, of which the last is near a league from
XC1V. the border of the Nile. Belliene was formerly a town, that made some figure, and
which had a mosque; but it is at present entirely ruined.
On the other side of theTiver, almost opposite to Samhuud, we saw
Ell-Bellabiisch, a mere village, above which we find the island
Giesiret-Abdelkadir: It may have two leagues in length, and lies
north and south. We remarked there a village, opposite which there is another
named
Nerarnisch; it is sltuated on the easlern more of the Nile.
Directly opposite the southern point of Giesiret-Abdelkadir are two other
villages,
B a g a n e s, and Benibersa. The first is sltuated upon the weslern more
of the river; the second upon the easlern shore.
After having passed, with a good deal of difficulty, Benibersa, on account of
the banks of sand, which were very high at this season, we saw upon our left
Ell-Umbiir, a village accompanied with a mosque; and in pursuingour
voyage, we perceived four other villages, namely
Schech mebadir, and Ell Gouasa, sltuated also to the easl of the river,
and
Alkilluug and Sauaggel, both to the west. A little higher, and on the
same side, is the village called
SaghEllBagjura. Between this village and that of Sauaggel, there is
a calisch, named Maharakka, and close to Sagh Ell Bagjura we sind the town
itself of
See the maP B a g j u r a . This town, sltuated at a little distance from the border of the Nile,
of the Nile, js pretty large, which is owing in a great measure to the nearness of the calisch of
XCV. Maharakka; and it has a mosque. Our people joined us again at Bagjura, and
brought us some wood ; which gave us a good deal of pleasure, because we had
a scarcity of it. At the time we were at Bagjura, sifteen janisfaries went to our
barque,
