Rupert Gunnis, Inspector of Antiquities and ADC to Sir Ronald Storrs, enjoyed his daily life of discoveries but became frustrated with the media politics of the time:

Down with Lucy to see my new excavations which are on the land of Mr Christophides. We found one or two things and I think it is a site which has possibilities. Then for a walk in the town and to the fruit market.

I was going down to teach in the school, but as there was an attack on me in the local press about trying to win the boys from their love for Greece! damn cheek, I call it counselling, this is a British Colony.
