Work at Karnak in the morning, and began a new study in the afternoon at Luxor temple
Mother and Corinna went over the little hospital with Dr. and Mrs. Saunders. and called on Mrs. Mond.  They acquired a find dragoman on the way. who would have surprised the Mond's by his appearance if they had been in to see him.

Mr. Quibell came to dinner to-night
Wind strong from the West, and cold and blustering all the afternoon
