Friday, November 14, 1924 (continued)
This afternoon Dr. Coleman of the C.M.S. Hospital sent a note today that Ali Mahmud Ahmed the boy hurt on November 8 was not expected to live. Sent Mahmud el Meyyit and two men in to Hospital. Blood poisoning has intervened.
Saturday, November 15, 1924
Fourteenth day of work.
This morning el Meyyit returned at 10 a.m. to say that Ali Mahmud had died in the night. I drove in to attend the inquest at the hospital and returned about 1 o'clock p.m. The body was taken to Qasr el-Aini for post mortem. [We notified the relations in Quft, and shall give him a decent burial. The examination shows that he was himself entirely to blame as he had disobeyed orders in taking over the pushing of the cart - a duty for which he had not been trained. It is very regrettable. We carry him on the paysheet to the end of the year for the benefit of the family.]
(1) street between G I-b and G I-a, [avenue G 1]
(1) Avenue G 1
Street between G I-b and G I-a. Continued clearing debris between G I-b and G I-a. [ILLUSTRATION] Owing to Vyse's old clearing the gang along G I-b progressed faster while the northern gang were delayed by the mass of debris thrown down from the upper part of pyramid G I-a by the Nas-er-Sisi for whom the right to take stone from this pyramid was prescribed by tradition. The edge sections of Vyse's cut show a semicircular mound of debris around the entrance to sloping passage of G I-b thrown out from that entrance. The pottery in this debris (black with organic decay) is of Ptolemaic-Roman types [ILLUSTRATION] etc. Evidently the late communal burial which Vyse found in burial chambers G I-b have already been plundered. There were also the usual fragments of amulets, etc. found in the black debris further east (cf. communal burial in Menkaure Pyramid Temple 27).
