Work as before.
In the afternoon started numbering mastabas with Rowe and gave him the work of recording the burial pits.
The opera "Aida" was performed on a stage erected on the north of the Khufu pyramid - one performance at 5 p.m. and one at about 9:30. A well sung performance got up by the association to promote travelling in Egypt, failed, I think, of obtaining any effect beyond that of an ordinary stage exhibition. The audience seemed to me to be unaware of the surroundings and of the sky overhead. It should have been performed without any light other than the moonlight.

Day of rest. Mrs. Reisner and I lunched with Artin Pasha and Madame Artin. Artin Pasha: "I do not understand how Maspero could allow the slate pair [Menkaure greywacke pair statue = published no. 17 = 10-1-16 = MFA 11.1738] to leave Egypt."
