Allen, Grant: My New Year's Eve Among the Mummies. V1. 3 Mar 2011
Charles Grant Blairfindie Allen (Grant Allen) (1848-1899), the son of an Irish Protestant minister and notable scholar, was born at Alwington, near Kingston, Ontario, Canada, on 24 February 1848. He was partly educated in America and France. In England he was at King Edward's School in Birmingham, and later at Merton College in Oxford, graduating with honors in 1871. He also studied in Europe. Two years later, in 1873, he was appointed Professor of Logic at Queens College, Spanish Town, Jamaica. He also taught philosophy, ethics, Latin, and Greek at this college for Negroes. When its principal died, Allen took over and from 1874 to 1876 was the college's principal.
Unfortunately, the truth of my account cannot be tested for another thousand years. But as a copy of this book will be preserved for the benefit of posterity in the British Museum, I hereby solemnly call upon Collective Humanity to try the veracity of this history by sending a deputation of archaeologists to the Pyramid of Abu Yilla, on the last day of December, Two thousand eight hundred and seventy-seven. If they do not then find Thothmes and Hatasou feasting in the central hall exactly as I have described, I shall willingly admit that the story of my New Year's Eve among the Mummies is a vain hallucination, unworthy of credence at the hands of the scientific world.
