The calling card is 3.5 x 7.5 cm, and only carries Wilson's name in copperplate: 'Rev. William A. Wilson'. On the reverse, at the head, is Petrie's signature, good and firm, with its characteristically-large 'P': 'W. M. Flinders Petrie.' In good condition, lightly aged, with the printed side of the calling card carrying two small rust stains, but the side with Petrie's signature markedly cleaner.
