"Edwards, accompanied by several friends, toured Egypt
in the winter of 1873–1874, discovering a fascination with
the land and its cultures, ancient and modern. Journeying
southwards from Cairo in a hired dahabiyeh (manned houseboat),
the party visited Philae and ultimately reached Abu Simbel,
where they remained for six weeks. Renshawe remained among
her travelling companions. Another party member was the English
painter Andrew McCallum, who discovered an unknown sanctuary
that came to bear his name for some time afterwards. Their boat
joined in a flotilla with another female English traveller, Marianne
Brocklehurst, also travelling with a female companion.
Brocklehurst and Edwards remained friends and Brocklehurst later
supported her Egypt Exploration fund."
