I haven’t a minute, but I must tell you that I closed with Tano yesterday, and the University has acquired an absolutely unique group of IVth Dynasty sculpture, the like of which does not exist in any museum in the world. And now all depends on President Judson’s support which he has so loyally given to this expedition; for I bought them when my money was all gone, and I must sit down now and write him a full statement of the situation. Good-bye, dearie. Kiss all the children big and little for their daddie.
