[THE BRITISH MUSEUM] T. House of the Department of Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities, The British Museum, to Mrs [Frances?] Epps
Publication details: 
6 June 1951 and 2 April 1952; both on departmental letterheads.

Both 1 page, 12mo. Both in good condition, although the first creased in two corners. It is unlikely that House held a senior position in his department as neither letter bears testimony to a good education. In the first letter he says he will be away from the Museum on a certain date, and suggests another day when, if convenient, he will 'bring the two ushabti figures from home and perhaps may be able to find others'. He saw Mr Epps on the previous day but 'we were too busy to talk'.
