Miss Hellberg desiring her departure back to Luxor the 17th of this month, the legation would be happy if it was possible to the Ministry to change the date on the license...If this was impossible, Miss Hellberg will leave this very evening, and for this reason the legation would be grateful for a response within as short a delay as possible, either in writing or by telephone. Emad el Din Street, Cairo, January 13, 1924. At Ministry of Public Works, Cairo.'' Single-page letter bears the stamp of the Swedish Legation to Cairo. Measures 8.5'' x 10.75''.
