[Books to Egypt]

Captain James Gildea purposes, as he did during the Afghan campaign, to collect, assort, and forward books, papers, and periodicals for the use of our soldiers and sailors in hospital in Egypt. He asks, therefore, that, such may be sent to his house, 20, Phillimore-gardens, Kensington, carriage paid. There will, of necessity, be some expenses besides packing charges, although the Peninsular and Oriental Company will make no charge for carriage to Egypt; and any help towards these Captain Gildea will be glad to receive and account for in due course.
