Mr. Rowe left this morning for a fortnight in Alexandria in the hope of recovering his strength after the attack of malaria started on Sunday 15 March, which had since recurred several times.
A cable arrived from Dr. Reisner at 10 a.m. authorizing a request to be made to Mr. Lindon Smith to paint a view of the tomb G 7000 X and for Mr. Lacau to authorize the private reopening of the chamber with this in view. [This proposal originated at the camps not from me. // GAR]
Instructions were also included to Greenlees to proceed to Boston via England.

A letter from Mr. Quibell this morning stated that Mr. Lacau did not wish the tomb to be reopened, and a cable was according sent to Dr. Reisner.
Among the ushabtis from G 7632 A (and with) those of Nesiptah, was one bearing the name of [TRANSLITERATION] [Psamtik-seneb] which would seem to date the whole to Dynasty 26. or at latest shortly after.
The piece of wood from one of the holes (in the temple platform) of G 7000 X, referred to on page 272 (near top), is roughly wedge-shaped [ILLUSTRATION]
G 7510 X
G 7510 X: The passage leading from the bottom of this pit westwards through very bad rock has been reported cleared. It contained no late bodies or limbs whereas the chamber contained many, all broken.
[clearly a thieves' passage only. -T. R. D. Greenlees]

The men were employed all the morning in collecting all the antiquities hitherto found in G 7000 X and now in the camp into one magazine together.
This afternoon a limestone door socket was found in the west of the southern doorway of the exterior chapel of G 7320. It seems of the usual shape and size.
The hole in the ground outside the chapel of G 7220 has been explored. It was evidently the site of an old factory for sarcophagi (?) of red Aswan granite, [but may as well have been a rubbish dump heap after final workings on the "sarcophagi" T. R. D. Greenlees] for great numbers of fragments of this and of hammers of black granite, one [ILLUSTRATION] are here and continue some way under the present floor. Carbon was also found here. Possibly fire was used in cracking the stone first.
Details of sailings arrived from Cairo today.
Mr. Lindon Smith has now finished the profile portrait of Ankhaf and the bust statue of [Idu] in his tomb [G 7102].
