Image 20 - M Darwish Araba 1899
On Muhammad Darwish (Hilda Petrie, 17.1.1899):
“Today the wall of the hut of Mohammed Derwish, one of our workmen, fell down: he only remarked to us, when he heard it – Rabbina kerim, izakan fil lel, ana tahtu “Our Lord is bountiful: had it been in the night, I should have been under it.” ”
One of the only instances of reported Arabic speech by workforce in Petrie archives.
