[G 4340 (continued)]
filling began (see G 2381 A where some of the pots were put hurriedly in the end of the shaft and smashed by the first stone of the plug.) The plunderers broke many of the pots inside looking for treasure and must have thrown some of their rubbish out into the pit.
Work begun on G 4140. This being the tomb of a woman it probably never contained a white head but I hope we may find some inscribed object perhaps a mud seal impression.
G 4220 clearing front, preparatory to laying railroad line.

Sent Elliot Smith four photos of white head.
