    I ask a favour. Is there anyone in ar-Rass who is particularly interested in the town in 1815 when Tousoun pashas was stationed nearby? I am curious about his expedition in the direction of Buraydah when Mehmet Ali returned to Cairo, c April 1815. A name and address, geographical or electronic would be valuable to me. In return I can offer a citation in my present work, or to edit your English information. Thank you. (I live in Nova Scotia).
