Subject: The Egyptian Papyrus Mystery

From: "Scooby Doo" <>


Dear Kids:

The gang and I are exhausted. Since we talked to you last, we traveled all the way from Lascaux, France, to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt and have been doing some site-seeing.

Talk to you soon.

Your friend,

Scooby Doo


I want to try to solve the mystery:
