young Cave to Briggs for dinner & afternoon tea. We went out then to some French friends of the Briggs. Met 5 or 6 French girls. They were very friendly. We stayed to tea & afterwards had some games.

We enjoyed ourselves immensely & are going to picnic to the Pyramids with them tomorrow afternoon.
