This chapter discusses Marcus Simaika's relationship with several British administrators, from Lord Cromer to Lord Lloyd. The head of the British administration in Egypt was the British agent and consul general until 1914, when his title became High Commissioner for Egypt and Sudan. After the 1936 Anglo-Egyptian Treaty, he became the British ambassador to Egypt and high commissioner for Sudan. Those administrators ran the country, first from the Turf Club, then from the British Residency in Qasr al-Dubara in Garden City. Among them were Sir Evelyn Baring (later the Earl of Cromer), Sir Eldon Gorst, Herbert Horatio Kitchener, Sir Arthur Henry McMahon, Sir Reginald Wingate, Lord Edmund Allenby, and George Lloyd. In his memoirs, Simaika recounted his impressions of the administrators he dealt with.
