Mazloum also goes into finance - by surcharging he suggests that 207'500 piastres could be raised from just 350'000 stamps - with this amount to be donated to charities such as the Red Cross or Anti-TB welfare groups. Mazloum's letter (in French) reads: "My Dear Pasha, Following the discussion I had with you on the 14th of this month at the end of the meeting of the Board of Directors of Misr Aviation Society, and followiing the statement made about the Aviation Congress to be held in Cairo in December 1933, I hasten to bring to your attention that you will eligible for a Government grant of £ 2'000 from this Congress, should his Majesty the King, our August Master, give his approval to the following project: We will surcharge stamps of 1, 2, 3 and 4 millièmes....and we will put these values on sale to the public for three monrths ...you will find below a 'Specimen' stamp" which is a 1927 1 m. orange-yellow with the hand-written surcharge "1933 / CONGRÈS / AVIATION / + 1 MM." in black ink, attached to the detailed table of proposed surcharges to be carried out. The group composing the five page hand-written letter on embossed paper, together with a green card reading 'Projet de subvention' and handstamped with framed oval cachet "Congres de la Federation Aeronautique Internationale XXXII Conférence, Le Caire 1933 /Comité Local" in violet. Egypt issued its first semi-postal in 1940. An article on this Essay appeared in the 'Quarterly Circular' of the Egypt Study Circle, September 2018, pages 166-167. A unique documentation for a proposed issue of great historical importance.
