Wednesday, December 9, 1914

Rained hard in the night. Cold and cloudy. Showers from 1 - 2 o'clock. West wind all day.

Work on
(1) offering room of G 5210
(2) space between G 5210 and G 5220
(3) space between G 5110 and G 5220

(1) G 5210
Under the outer room of G 5210 is the beginning of a sloping shaft. It is very difficult to get at, but I think the shaft was never used or finished.

In the space west of the rubble wall (inclined construction plane) in hard debris, many fragments of alabaster statues (none of importance).
