Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 376
Dec. 28 Tue.
Went for a jolly long walk this afternoon occupying fully three hours. Through Gezira, Kasr-el-Nil, Garden City, City of Cairo, & back through Kasr-el-Nil & Gezira.
Have decided to take up French & Arabic in earnest & put an advt. in the Egyptian Mail to-day for a teacher. So far I have very slight knowledge of Arabic although I can do better at French notwithstanding the fact that I can get very slight opportunities for conversation.
