I am having a good time at the pyramids

Dear Claude,

I am having a good time at the pyramids, museum, zoo etc.

Practically nothing grows back from the Nile and we drill there.  The heat is pretty oppressive but it will get us in good order.  I like the work and am glad I commenced flag waving.  We expect to get no flag work in action.  It has been too expensive and we will get all bugger work in the burrows. (trenches)

Hope you get a good harvest.

Your Br. Stid
