(1) Street G 7000 (continued)
G I-a, main street, The pyramid G I-a have been cleared to rock. The lowest course of the pyramid is laid with slanting stones.
The east line of the casing appears to be exactly in line with the east line of G I-b at the same level. Not a stone remains of the chapel and we can only make a plan of the cuts in the rock where it stood.
The trench in the hard debris (marked "wall trench" above) is perhaps the place of a wall (addition to temple?) from which the stone or brick has been removed.
West of the railroad line we have reached the north end of mastaba G 7110.
The loading point was shifted 17 meters northwards and there remains less than 10 meters of embankment to move.
(2) G 7110
Continued clearing pit of G 7110. The earth is dirty blown dust.
Monday, December 1, 1924
Twenty-eighth day of work.
"Egyptian Gazette" brings official report of meeting of fifty men of a Sudanese battalion (No. 11). Quelled with loss of life - three British officers and two Syrian doctors. The cause is obscure but lies no doubt in the recent anti-British propogandum.
The fourth Egyptian battalion has arrived in Cairo from the Sudan.
By actual count, moved six hundred fifty-four (654) wagon loads of earth today - three hundred twenty-seven (327) metric tons.
