Dear General Storrs,

You will probably remember that the last time I had the pleasure of seeing you at the auction rooms of Christie's the day of the sale of the famous Portland Vase, I told you that I may take a trip to Egypt and you told me then not to fail to let you know if ever I planned coming to Egypt.

Now I want to tell you that I am leaving New York on the "Laurentic" on the 9th of January on a cruise, stopping off at Constantinope[[sic]], Athens, Haifa, and Alexandria, and we plan to spend some time in Egypt, from the 2nd of February until about the 8th and I hope there will be an opportunity of seeing you then.

With kind regards, and wishing you the Compliments of the Season, believe me to be

Yours sincerely,

General Sir Ronald Storrs,
Government House,
Island of Cyprus.
