Friday, January 12, 1912

After making a series of photographs of room 3 in mastaba I [= G 1501] showing roof in situ, after removal and statue, the latter was removed and taken to the house. To the east of this mastaba are several pits, not very deep, but with doors at bottom blocked with stones. After the general work on mastaba is finished these will be opened up. Photographs have been taken of pits showing stone sealed doors. The main work is now at the end of old excavations and will continue this north to edge. Nothing has yet developed there.
