Monday, March 1, 1926 (continued)

(1) G 7000 X (continued)
We removed Nos. 173 to 177: Elements belong to this board. The board fell face up and the line of decayed wood is visible from 175 across to 174. No. 175 a, b lie off the wood to the north (ca. 10 cm). Evidently the wind of the fall of the board or a wind produced by the collapse of the large carrying chair blew 175 a-b off the fallen board. Other displacements were no doubt caused by wind produced in a similar manner.
