Georges Daressy sends a letter

In 1889, Georges Daressy wants to send his publication on the mastaba of Mera to the press.

Daressy letter from 1898

Gizah,  26 January 1898

Dear Sir and colleague,

I am returning to you the corrected proofs of part of the notice of Mera’s tomb, intended for the Memoires de l’ Institut Égyptien(1). I would be most obliged if you could have them sent to the printer Holzhansen, in Vienna.

Yours sincerely,

G. Daressy
