You have me at a disadvantage I'm
afraid. I presume that we've been
introduced and my sieve-like memory
has let me down again.
As for your reference to the
Atubi boy—the idea of employing
penicillin on a 3000-year-old royal
mummy doesn't quite fall within the
practical range of a doctor of
archeology. However, I appreciate
your somewhat sardonic sense of
How did you get hold of my
address in Nairobi?

How did Kenya work out? Where the masks as interesting
as the museum was suggesting?
Today was pure Indian Summer and the boulevards
were awash with truanting Parisians extending their
breakfasts into their lunches and their lunches
into their dinners. Back home in Montreal they'd
all get fired, but here ... no one gives a host.
I've been trying to make the most of the sunshine
before classes start again and I put my moleskin on

better of it—I presume even the French

Matthew — Forgive my enigmatic introduction.
It's an old habit. Please allow me to begin a fresh,
with a short summary of our first encounter.

the Sicmon Islands) was called upon to preside over a birth,
and as neither assistant was to be found, I was enlisted as
temporary nurse. The baby, who made a fine
