“Van der Meulen and von Wissmann have laid solid foundations for a detailed exploration of Hadramaut; they have smoothed the way for later investigators, who, provided they are endowed with the same tact and modesty, and with the same understanding of Arabian psychology, will be able to complete the task; by their behaviour they have sown the seeds of respect and esteem for the name of European”. C. Snouck Hurgronje (The preface).
