In this letter Marie Seton gives her impressions of Cairo, the Sphinx, and the Pyramids. She also comments on the behaviour of Egyptians and Europeans compared with Indians and Pakistanis. She gives her impressions of the Mosque of Mohammed Ali and informs Ronald that she is travelling with Anu, Sushila's sister. She provides details about the Nawab of Chhatari's background, an account of formal presentations made by people on board the ship to the Nawab of Chhatari's and Seton's disgust at people's reactions to him.
