Visits His Relatives At Hadet
17. Four of the relatives of Asaad came down, and succeeded in
persuading him to accompany them home. He said he could not believe,
after all that has been said, that they would do him violence, and he
strongly expected that his visit to Hadet would do good. A majority of
us opposed his going with all we could say; but he thinks he knows the
people here better than we do. He left us toward evening, expecting to
be absent only a few days.
