Image 10 - Hilda Petrie on horseback

Hilda Dec 23 1898, market trip:

“Ali himself went on to Dichna, so returning we had only the black groom, Hassan Sudani, with us, and one arab, Mohammed Shergawi, and the horse, but going to Waqf we were a merry party of 16.”

  1. How liberated she was by Egypt and Petrie. Everything he says about her acknowledges her equality in his eyes, the woman 'on whose toil most of my work has depended'. Such an extraordinary partnership.
