[Menkaure quarry cemetery (continued)]
To facilitate the removal of the sand from in front of this tomb, a short piece of track was laid.
The floor of the chamber discovered yesterday [MQ 130] was cleared, and three burial shafts were found. All appear to have been robbed.
Work was completed on mastabas G 2172, G 2175, G 2176, G 2177, G 2178, G 2179, G 2227, which are to be given over to Junker, who wishes to run his railroad line across them.
There were several visitors, Lowell and Wigglesworth of Boston, Blackman of the E.E.F.

[Menkaure quarry cemetery]
Work today was as yesterday. A short railroad line was laid west of the pit opened yesterday [ILLUSTRATION]. Two cars were used, each making the round trip in less than two minutes, including the time necessary to fill the car.
Chamber "B" [MQ 121] was cleared, and was found to be on a higher level than Chamber "A" [MQ 130], fully 1.5 meters between the two levels.
C [= MQ 132], D [= MQ 120] = Other mastabas on lower level, partially built of masonry.
E = railroad line.
a = biers.
b = it should be noticed the quarry face is dressed only around the doors of A [= MQ 130] and B [= MQ 121].
c = white limestone sarcophagus
The floor of B [= MQ 121] is very rough, there being a difference of fully .5 meters between the northern and southern ends. The door itself is also unfinished.
