Sunday, October 31, 1915 (continued)

[ARROW] on plan marks path supported by rubble and leading to G 5032, G 5031. The hard, reddish brown debris forming the foundation of the path was piled against G 5130 north end and slopes down over the space in front.

(2) on plan marks isolated heap of rubble on "floor". The top corresponds to level of approach to path.

The destruction caused by aimless modern excavation in this region makes it difficult to follow the floors. We are placing the large stones from G 5230 found along the north end on the hard floor north of G 5230.
