Notes on a journey from Erz-Rúm, by Músh, Diyár-Bekr, and Bíreh-jik, to Aleppo, in June, 1838
Tiny, but charming and informative report from a journey from Erzurum, via Muş, and Diyarbakır to Urfa and on to Aleppo/ Haleb. In the mountains of Kulp, Diyarbakır, Pollington visited a camp of yezidi Kurds of which left a vivid description.
Viscount Pollington, whose is also known as John Savile, 4th Earl of Mexborough, was a British MP, who visired the region before.
