Sunday 21st May

Did not turn out to breakfast till 9.30. A most enjoyable "lie in". Hotel very cool, the hot spell appears to have passed. Wrote letters during the morning. Left Cairo by 6.15 PM train, arriving at Serapeum about 11 PM. Found a number of back letters on my table. They had been to the 3rd Brigade in France and returned here. Cable received stating Halford’s appointment not approved. Am writing about him.
