Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 120
[Saturday 29 April 1916]
Court again. These Sikhs have a conspiracy of Silence, & it is a slow biz dragging out evidence. I rewrite all the evidence every night 2 hours work.
I found tonight what can be found in many wealthy Eastern houses- An old English Governess who had been for 30 years in Egypt She told many things about the rotteness of the Rich Pasha's homes, & the way in which they endeavoured to Copy the English being the sincerest form of Flattery.
Truth, Honesty-Morality are sadly lacking in Egypt & they are quite unfitted to govern themselves.
