"I came away rather early for I had a lesson at 5. My Pundit was extremely pleased with me, he kept congratulating me on my proficiency in the Arabic tongue! I think his other pupils must be awful duffers. It is quite extraordinarily interesting to read the Koran with him and it is such a magnificent book! He has given me some ""Arabian Nights"" for next time and I have given him some Hafez poems to read, so we shall see what we shall see. He is extremely keen about the Hafez book."
