My Beloved Angee,
Arrived here from Port Said by an Egyptian steamer early this morning and was hoping to have had time this afternoon to write the usual budget, but have been hindered by callers and now it is near mail time and you must accept an old English letter for once just to say all well – was glad to get your letter here this morning but did not receive any at Port Said so that the one Arundel posted there will go on to Bombay now – the address I left – for any arriving after my departure.
It was very hot at Port Said but much cooler here, so that I hope to get some sleep tonight not having had any for past 2 or 3 nights.
Now with much love to you and all our dear ones believe me my beloved Angee.
Being very affectionate Husband
