Thursday, January 14, 1915 (continued)
Returned in the evening to Mansourah and after spending a second night with Mr. Edgar, I returned to the Pyramids on the 15th.

Received a letter from Mr. Daressy in reply to my inquiry about Mit-Rahineh, he states that while Petrie has definitely given up his work at Mit-Rahineh, the concession for the site has already been granted to another applicant, Prince Bibesco on behalf of the Romanian Government. He states further, however, that as the Romanian Government would not be able to make excavations during the present year, it is possible to give us a part of that site. This is quite fair and in strict accordance with the new law of antiquities which stipulates that in order to hold a concession from year to year at least six weeks’ work much be done on it each season. He requests me to submit to the Comité, with my application, a rough sketch plan of the site showing the part which I desire.
