Background on the Carlyle Expedition

To be read before we start Masks


Number 5 is missing from these. It reads:


CAIRO (AP) – Sir Aubrey Penhew, temporary spokesman for the Carlyle Expedition, indicated Monday that the leaders are taking ship to East Africa for a ‘well-earned rest.’

Sir Aubrey debunked rumours that the exbedition had discovered clues to the legendary wealth of the lost mines of King Solomon, maintaining that the party was going on safari ‘in respite from our sandy labors.’

Roger Carlyle, wealthy New York leader of the exbedition was unavailable for comment, still suffering from his recent sunstroke. Discussing that unfortunate incident, local experts declared Egypt entirely too hot for Anglo-Saxons at this time of year, and suggested that the young American had not been well served by his democratic enthusiasm, rumored to have led him to personally wield pick and shovel. -New York Pillar/Riposte, July 3, 1919
