period of uarantine the French Consul General Monsieur Mimaut sent his new understudy a number of books to help pass the time and one of these books proved to be a lengthy memorandum composed by French engineer Jacues Marie le Père writing on instructions from Napoleon Bonaparte The subject was the linking of the Red Sea with the Mediterranean by the construction of a canal This study made a deep impression on the mind of the young diplomat and for the remainder of his term of service in Egypt he applied himself to studying the uestion Eventually he came to believe that it was not only a viable project but a potentially profitable one too and of course it would be nothing less than a stupendous gift to mankind As it turned out the concept of linking the Red Sea with the Mediterranean
