It is stated in the Shuttleworth Collection Records, England, that an aircraft currently in their collection, a de Havilland DH.51, was built in 1925 and shortly after John Evans Carberry bought and shipped it to Mombasa. The DH.51 first flew in Africa on 4 April 1926. In June 1928, Tom Campbell Black, G. Skinner and A. Hughes bought the aircraft and on 10 September 1928, it became the first aircraft to be registered in Kenya.

years unaccounted for. The most probably supposition seems to be that he may spent longer in India than he later said, and that after going to Mecca he travelled elsewhere in the Ottoman Empire. When he arrived in Afghanistan in 1866 he claimed to be from Istanbul, and he might not have made this claim if he had never even seen the city, and could be caught in ignorance of it.''

in the Malaysian state of Pahang. The '''Balinese alphabet''' (Balinese (Balinese language): ''Aksara Bali'') is an abugida that was used to write the Balinese language, an Austronesian language spoken by about three million people on the Indonesian island of Bali. The use of the Balinese script has mostly been replaced by the Latin script. Although it is learned in school, few people use it. It is mostly used in temples and for religious writings.

'''Chaim Joseph David Azulai''' ben Isaac Zerachia (1724 &ndash; 1 March 1806) (Hebrew: '''חיים יוסף דוד אזולאי'''), commonly known as the '''Chida''' (by the acronym of his name, '''חיד"א'''), was a Jerusalem born rabbinical scholar (rabbi), a noted bibliophile, and a pioneer in the publication of Jewish religious writings.

used for religious writings in Judaism. It is originally a Greek (Greece) word and one of three Talmudic names for animal skin. The other two are kelaf and gevil. The meanings of these terms, however, are the subject of controversy in Jewish law (Halakha). According to the Talmud, a sefer Torah should, ideally, be written on gvil, but may also be on klaf, Tefillin must be written on Klaf, and Mezuzah should be written on duchsustus, kelaf, or gevil.

—a series of portraits delineated according to the Scriptures and Josephus. This was soon followed by "The Jewish Faith: Its Spiritual Consolation, Moral Guidance, and Immortal Hope," in thirty-one letters, the last dated September, 1846. Of this work—addressed to a Jewess under the spell of Christian influence, to demonstrate to her the spirituality of Judaism—the larger part is devoted to immortality in the Old Testament. Miss Aguilar's other religious writings —some of them written as early as 1836—were collected in a volume of "Essays and Miscellanies" (1851–52). The first part consists of "Sabbath Thoughts" on Scriptural passages and prophecies; the second, of "Communings" for the family circle. ''Galena'' was detached from the James River Flotilla in September 1862 and assigned picket duty at Hampton Roads and Newport News, Virginia until 21 May 1863, when she arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and was decommissioned for repairs. Her ineffective iron plating — which had been badly damaged in the action at Drewry's Bluff — was stripped off, and she was overhauled to operate as a wooden-hulled ship. At the time of the arrival of the Europeans in the 16th and 17th century, the Lenape homeland generally encompassed the territory adjacent to the Delaware (Delaware River) and lower Hudson (Hudson River) river valleys, as well the territory between them. It stretched from modern-day Delaware to western Connecticut and Long Island and included parts of eastern Pennsylvania all of present day New Jersey, and the southern counties of New York State (New York), including Nassau County (Nassau County, New York), and the five boroughs of New York City. Along with New York City, Newark (Newark, New Jersey), Trenton (Trenton, New Jersey), Princeton (Princeton, New Jersey), Philadelphia, Wilmington, Delaware, Atlantic City, and numerous other urban and suburban areas are in Lenapehoking today, as are the Jersey Shore, Pine Barrens, the Sourland Mountains, the Delaware Valley, and perhaps some parts of the Catskills, Poconos, and the Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Today, some Native Americans not limited to the Lenape or Delaware tribes live in the Northeast Corridor or Eastern Seaboard. Many of them arrived in the 1920's to 1960s from the Iroquois Confederacy employed as skyscraper construction workers, where they been nicknamed the "Mohawks" and they played an important rule in building the skyline of Philadelphia and New York City. In the University City, Philadelphia section of West Philadelphia, there has been some political activity by Urban Indian residents of the area whom adapted the namesake ''Lenapehoking'' to where they live, but only a small number are American Indians and some protests and near-riots by them occurred there in the late 2000's and 2010.
