EXPERIENCES FROM A PENINSULA TROOPER.

The following extract from a Penin Bula volunteer's letter shows what opportunities our men are having of ■ seefng some of the most interesting country in the world:— "A party of us had a grand tour round Cairo to day. We hired a good guide, carriages and a boat. We had a short trip on the Nile, and our drive was very pleasant. We visited all sorts of interesting historical places. Some of the places were:—Garden and home of Pharaoh's daughter, birthplace of Moses, and also the place where he was picked up in the bulrushes ; beautiful little temple where Christ stayed for some time, and also other places visited by Him ; tombs of great kings of long ago (these were all very beautiful), and a lot of other his torical places mentioned in the Bible In the evening we drove ioto the desert, and had a tour over the ruins of Old Cairo We bad a very fine view of an Egyptian sunset from here. Wo then drove past the citadel and the present Sudan's residence, and came back to Cairo via the slums. We all (about 60 of us), had a grand dinner 'at the Bristol Hotel, and afterwards

went to tho Kursaal and bad a good two hours' entertainment."
