from Cairo, I judge some very important things are awaiting me there.

The Sanadano collection, the best private one in all Egypt, which I inspected in Alexandria last year, and out of which I was allowed then to make some fine purchases, which later they would not deliver, now is again offered to me. This time I am told they will deliver all that I selected  last year. If this is true, I will get some perfect Egyptian objects- but they will cost a lot of money. However, I shall not count my chickens until they stand upon their feet.

I met Mrs. Will Croul[[?]] and Rowena at the Wallace Colln. yesterday they both seemed very well. Trusting that you and yours are enjoying the best of health.
Very sincerely.
