(2) Street G 7000 S (south)
Continued clearing back of G 7150 of debris thrown out by us from G 7150, and westwards along face of G 7050.
(3) G 7050
In course of clearing Street G 7000 S (south) began clearing front of G 7050.
G 7050 has a core of massive yellow limestone blocks but of the later inferior type of Cemetery G 4000. The casing is of fine white limestone but is badly weathered, preserved to the second or third course. Near the middle is a great deposit of fine black ashes from a fire (of cornstalks ?). In the surface debris were found fragments of Saite-Ptolemaic objects as usual.
(4) Railroad V and G 7060
G 7060 is Lepsius 57, the tomb of the Prince Nefermaat.
Began laying railroad V between G 7050 and G 7060 in order to reach the southern face of Pyramid G I-c. The dump will lie on the trenched ground west of the present dump. See G 7050 of this date.
