[?1916] sorry to get away.
I slept a night in Cairo on my way but had to go on next morning however I got iced drinks & a deep bath. Here we get quite a lot of ice though not enough to float about in drinks.
This month I believe is the hottest here so we’ve broke the back of the summer now.
I expect this is because the river rises now.
I am longing for snow ice & a woodcock though there isn’t much immediate prospect of it. I expect the strawberries & goosegobs are in great form. We are getting luscious water melons anyway
