                  Email instead of telegrams!
When a telegram is written, only the main words in the sentence are
used. Smaller words are taken out so that the telegram can be sent more
quickly and easily.

Imagine that e-mail was available in the year 1922 when the telegram
was written. Draft an e-mail message that you would have written to Lord
Carnarvon trying to persuade him not to enter the mummy’s tomb.
