Dear Dr. Pfeiffer,
It is now more than half a year since I visited you in Cambridge, Mass; you were kind to read my Mns and to comment on it. It might be that you are curious to know, what happened to me and my work. Since the fall I wrote an introducting chapter (suggestion of Dr. Wolfson), a new chapter dealing with Ras Shamra material; also a chapter about the Sothis period; and perfected Ramses III chapter; the rest of the winter I was busy with the other manuscript, dealing with the physical aspect of the catastrophes of the past.
I enclose here the chapter about Ramses III.
I have not yet approached Harvard or Oxford Press, but I shall nto delay to do so soon.
