anyone has anything about him?
here is what i know:

he was of lebanese origins and lived in cairo egypt. on 7 Bergas Street in Garden city. he must have lived between 1890-1960.

in the 30's he must have been around 40years old [estimated from a photograph with Ex-King Ali of Hejaz]

he was an important journalist in Cairo, before becoming official councellor to the kings of Egypt [especially under King Farouk]. he was also a very close friends to a large number of the time's arab royalties of Egypt and Iraq.

he was wealthy enough to travel a lot in those times 1920-1950, between France Egypt Lebanon Syria Saudi Arabia England etc...

i think he had Two sisters, one of them having married a Hilmi of Egypt.

he was catholic (melkite i guess) from Beirut.

He spent his last days in Paris.after the revolution

his name is spelled differently Tabet, Thabet or Sabet in different publications.

I appreciate your help.
