Saturday, December 19, 1925. Continued from Book I.
(7) G 6050
G 6050 A: Work proceeded very slowly owing to the large stones which it was necessary to break up and remove. Down 12.2 meters. The debris is now limestone rubbish perhaps original filling for in the southwest corner a shaft (thieves hole) filled with clean drift sand goes down and marks the descent of the thieves who thus avoided clearing the whole area of the pit.
(8) G 7000 SW (southwest)
Continued with the trenches 29 and 32.
For trench 29, late graves XXII [G 7000 SW 22] and XXIII [G 7000 SW 23] were finished.
In trench 32, exposed a wall leading up from south towards Pyramid G I-c and the mastabas and this is as rock. It is apparently a plane for bringing up stones. Following it looking north and looking south.
