Content DescriptionLikes Luxor very much. Has been to see Tutankhamun's tomb. Tried to sail down the Nile to Cairo but the river was so low that they had to continue by train. Informs him that they sail for Rhodes and Constantinople on the 24th Mar. Speculates about future travel plans to Venice, Glion and London. Thinks that Princess Mary will melt if she goes to Wadi Halfa [Sudan] at this time of year. Sorry to hear that Peter Cookson has gone.
