The limits of [the pit // GAR] are now clear. [The limestone packing seen at the end of the tunnel was the packing of the pit. // GAR] [Directly over this packing // GAR] there were found this morning the rectangular outlines of a pit [seen in the rock surface // GAR]. [The mouth of // GAR] this pit was cleverly concealed by being blocked with large rough pieces of rock cemented together to imitate the natural surface of the "gebel" [nummulitic limestone]. It was through this pit [mouth // GAR] that the blocks [of the packing observed at the end of the tunnel // GAR] were lowered and cemented into position course by course. [(N. B. Corrections by GAR in brackets [] )]
