The Curse of Tutankhamun
Letter from Lady Herbert
A Letter from Lady Evelyn Herbert
August 22nd, 1923
To Whom It May Concern:
My dear friend, it is with great sorrow that I write this to notify you of the passing of my father – Lord George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon. Days after Howard led us in to the tomb in the Valley of the Kings, the Earl passed from a wasting illness. His health has always been poorly, but the suddenness of his passing is too shocking and too coincidental and bears consideration of devious acts.
Please make haste to Cairo, my resources are at your disposal. I will have a berth reserved for you on the September 2nd ship out of New York City. Rooms will be held for you at the Cairo Grand Hotel. I appreciate your assistance in these dire days and I fear I have need of you more than ever.
With great respect and regards,
Lady Evelyn Herbert
