'Dear Sir My friend D. Charles Bezold has very kindly given me the... card of introduction to you. I am going therefore to venture on asking you a few questions on the ancient inhabitants of Southern Arabia.
I have just returned from excavating very extensive ruins in Mashoonaland between the Zambesi & the Limpopo rivers... & in the centre of the gold producing country. My finds there are decidedly puzzling. They have no relation whatsoever to anything African. ...
May I ask for an early reply as I have to give in a ... of my work to the Societies which sent me out. Yours truly Theodore Bent'
