Carter writes to Newberry, 1931
In the archives of the Griffith Institute, there is a lot of correspondence between various Egyptologists.
Among their collection, this 1931 letter, written by Howard Carter to Percy Newberry in which he asks Newberry for some information of the Hermitage Collection.
Sept. 17th 1931
My dear Newberry,
You must be busy preparing to leave for Egypt These days – So I hate to bother you, but have you, perchance, a catalogue of the Egyptian things at the Hermitage, or could you give me any details regarding the finer pieces in the way of Egyptian in that Collection?
I have arranged to leave on the 2nd of Oct. from Venice and shall be if all’s well in Cairo on the 6th.
Best of wishes to your Dear wife
