Friday, January 29, 1915 (continued)

Still clearing drift sand from along west side of 3030 and from the east side of 3050 and also from above a small mastaba, 3041, which lies between them. Started clearing out drift sand from north end of space between 3030 and 3050. Before leaving for the Sudan Mr. Fisher had inserted in the Gazette an advertisement for a narrow gauge railway track and cars to be used in the work. Today a Mr. A. Foretich of Cairo, who said he was a contractor, called to see Mr. Fisher in regard to selling him some track and cars. I informed him of Mr. Fisher’s absence and said that I would let him know of the offer. Made another photograph (C11) from the same position as former two, showing progress of work.

Saturday, January 30, 1915
