…[ex]cavations; another track extends westward from mastaba 3000, parallel to the other track.
Yesterday Bechari made a picture (C9) of the area which we are about to excavate; this was made from the top of a large mastaba at the southern limit of the excavation looking E of N. Today another view was made from the same point to show progress of the work. It is planned to make a series of these photographs of different parts of the excavations to show the progress.
