Three pages, 16mo, bifolium, foxing on internal 'spine', good condition, a sprawling hand. The [?] boots have arrived and are an excellent fit. Will you please tell the maker that I am quite satisfied. Thank you very much for the trouble you have taken about them. | Since my return I have been very hard worked. I often think of the pleasant time I spent with you in the Dongola province. Slatin [Pasha] sent me some very good photos of the different corps de ballet. The letter connects three major figures in Anglo-Egypt.
