Looking westward, we see the ghastly bare and naked Secondary formation, the Rugham of the Bedawin, not to be confounded with Rukham ("alabaster or saccharine marble"). We afterwards traced this main feature of the 'Akabah Gulf as far south as the Wady Hamz. It is composed of the sulphates of lime—alabaster, gypsum, and the plaster with which the Tertiary basin of Paris supplies ...

Then we are ready to help others, and care less to hinder any, because nobody's elbows are in our way. So I am glad you have a little life left; you will be saccharine enough in ...

... cone of El-Makl' ends the prospect in the north-eastern direction. Looking westward, we see the ghastly bare and naked Secondary formation, the Rughm of the Bedawin, not to be confounded with Rukhm ("alabaster or saccharine marble").
