Yesterday met Judge & local prosecutor
[indecipherable] very worthy no doubt but could not understand a word they said, however enjoyed the day.
Just heard my leave granted from tonight till Sunday morning so ride in to
Samalut- wired for a bed to Continental Hotel & arrived at 9 pm.
Cairo was a gay city after the Desert, & I intend to combine business with pleasure.
