13 December 1923: Ruby Jackson Everett writing to her sister about Christmas preparations in Cyprus.
“Now for more news. We drove to Nicosia on Sunday with Mr Sides in his Fiat. Charlie got me my Christmas present: a Fiat car. It is a beauty, an Italian car, Charlie drove it home but I rode with Mr Slides. Charlie never drove anything but a Ford before, so did very well coming home over the mountain roads. I expect to run it soon.”
