    Excerpt from Travels in Arabia, Vol. 2 of 2: Comprehending an Account of Those Territories in Hedjaz Which the Mohammedans Regard as Sacred The name of Kayd Beg, which frequently occurs, is sometimes spelt in the Ms. Kait Beg, and once erroneously Kail Beg, On reference to Burckhardt's Nubian Travels, it appears that he entered Djidda on the 18th of July, and not on the 15th, as printed in the first page of this volume through a mistake of the figure 8 for 5; the ink with which he wrote having in many parts of his Journal faded considerably, and become of a pale reddish colour. As far, also, as the faded ink in some places of the Ms. allows the editor (and others who have seen it) to judge, Mekkawy is used to express a person of Mekka: in many pages of the Ms. Mekkan is distinctly written, but the Arabic derivative Mekky occurs only in the Author's Introduction (p. xiv.) Local derivatives similar to Mekkawy occur in the various parts of Burckhardt's works: the present volume, and his Syrian and Nubian Travels, exhibit Djiddavy, Yembavvy, Kennawy, Dongolawy, Bornawy, Bedjawy, &c. from Djidda, Yembo, Kenne, Dongol, Bornou, Bedja, &c.
