Howard Carter's address in 1931

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
