Hillah Fort, Mesopotamia
April 5, 1920
I shall not be able to go on with the last of our work at this place. I must run to breakfast now and get off to Birs Nimrûd 15 miles south. This afternoon we leave for Baghdad. Excuse this scrappy chronicle, and accept worlds of love for you, and all my dear ones, the big boy and the little boy, and the baby girl. Lovingly, James.
For the full story of my exciting trip you should come to the special exhibit “Pioneers to the Past: American Archaeologists in the Middle East, 1919-1920,” at the Oriental Institute!
