It’s tough writing these reports when I have to leave town.  But I have no choice.  I may be treasure hunting here in Colorado, but a minister in Cairo now suspects I smuggled an ancient Gnostic papyrus scroll out of his country.  I told him I rescued it from the black market.  He told me I stole it by raiding a tomb.  I told him I handed it over to an expert on Egyptian Antiquities.  He told me the expert was murdered.

Only an old professor friend can help me now, and he’s at my alma mater — the University of Chicago.  His contacts with the Egyptian underworld are legendary.  If I can meet with him and he can help me track down the scroll, I won’t be arrested.  I’ll write more in a couple days…

Stay tuned.  And stay safe.
