…inscribed with the names of the man and his wife. This statuette is now in the Boston Museum. Dr. Reisner thinks there may be great possibilities in this area. There are walls of several stone cased mastabas showing above the surface. It is his plan to lend me his head man, Mahmud Ahmed Said, as a head reis, and about 50 or 60 men whom he does not intend to employ himself; and his offer of the site was intended to give us a place to work in the event of our not securing another site and also to give employment to a number of his workmen whom otherwise he would be unable to use this season. He intends closing his own work at Giza next week and will then go up to the Sudan to work at Kerma in continuation of his work begun there last year. In connection with his offer he said that if our Museum was not satisfied with the results he would refund the money which we expended on the excavations.
