…was a log lintel inscribed, “Chief of the Silver Treasury, Nofer,”=G35.
We are now clearing the sand from between mastabas 3014 and 3022; 3021 and 3022; 3023 and 3024. Shafts A-B-C of 3022 contain sand, under which is dark limestone debris. Shaft A of 3004 is finished. Northwest of 3015, with the outer wall of its offering room touching the northwest angle of 3015, is a small nearly square mastaba, 3024. This is built entirely of mud brick, and contains two shafts, A and B. The walls of the offering room were added after the main structure was built, and the entrance is through a small mud brick extension at the north, which is built against mastaba 3005. The offering room contains two double niches at the southern end, and a small single niche near the entrance door. Between the two double niches is a small ledge of mud brick, which probably originally supported the offering slab. The roof is a barrel vault, built of mud bricks; the inner surface was moulded to represent bundles of reeds painted red.
Received a telegraph from Dr. Reisner from Kerna, stating that Mr. Fisher is returning but that the Reisners are staying on for two weeks more.
