Friday, April 26, 1912 (continued)

Thus G 4341 appears to be part of the enlargement (casing) of G 4340. The debris between G 4240 and G 4340 is enlightening.

[ILLUSTRATION]

It is clear that the casing of G 4340 was removed and the pit cleared before the drift sand filled up the spaces.

Sent fourteen men to Girga.

In the evening Mrs. Reisner, Fisher and myself dined with the Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Urquhart at Mena House. There are only eight people in the hotel and the place looked deserted and lonely. It has been a very short season.
