All hands on valley temple on sand above outer(?) court. Three railway lines running west, with four carts. Two shovelmen were tossing sand into each cart. The carts alone carried out over 600 loads (=300 tons) of sand. The rest of the men worked with baskets on the north and south ends inaccessible to carts. By evening the whole south half of the inner court was nearly fully of sand, and I ordered the rails shifted to fill the north west quarter.
Petrie came to lunch, admired the statue exceedingly.
