Someone -- I think your wife or Charlie -- told me that you had found 
the source for the duck shoot. This someone thought that the source 
was Lane, Modern Egyptians. But I just checked Lane rather rapidly 
(Table of Contents, Index, and skim -- not letting the book get 
control of me) and didn't find a duck shoot.

If you tell me, I will keep it to myself. Honest. But I'm curious 
because I searched for the source of that damned duck shoot for years 
-- and obviously didn't find it. Recently I began collecting books 
that Durrell used -- and I'd like to get this one.
