Diary Transcription: begin page 59
Sunday, February 14, 1915 (continued)

In the floor of the same passage in front of chamber X was an inscribed offering slab =G29.
The shafts A and D of 2094 [= G 3094] are filled with hard packed dark debris. The space between 2094 [= G 3094] and 2097 [= G 3097] is also filled with hard packed debris.
In order the we might have a photograph of the two stelae [GEM_1209 and EMC_JE_46495] and remove them without publicity, I was obliged to ask the mounted military policeman to go away.
One of the workmen, Abd er Rahim Mohammed, ran a nail clear through his foot last night and we had to send him this morning to the hospital. Photograph C33 shows the area under excavation to date; C37 is another view of the two stelae of Medady and his wife.
