Dear Velikovsky,

from a reader of Die Seevölker I hear that Fig. 1, “Persian Guard” seems not to be of a guard, but of a nobleman presenting some gift to his sovereign. I would therefore suggest to use a picture of an actual guard soldier, the one in the copy of a photograph I’m enclosing. In a reprint I shall have it exchanged, and if you wish I could send an appropriate photo copy to you. But you might find it just as easy to obtain an original from Chicago.

To Ramses I’m enclosing further corrections, mostly to footnote errors. In the first set I sent to you, on page 141, in footnote 4 second line, only the n in “in” should be replaced by m: “Boghaskoei” and “Kappadocien” of course should remain as they are. Note, however, that in the synchronical table page 254 Amasis has been forgotten.

I take this opportunity of enclosing Ms. Vera Kerkhof’s statement, and also a confirmation by UMSCHAU. Ramses II und seine Zeit is to be published September 20, and of course you will be sent a copy at once. I hope you will be good enough to let me know any errors in Seevölker or Ramses which you have or will detect.

Best wishes, yours
