Friday, February 5, 1915 (continued)

Also clearing the two offering rooms [of G 3092], X and Y. Y, the southern chamber, was empty, and had simply a niche in the east face of the mastaba. It opened toward the north into a sort of entrance corridor. There is also a small window in the north wall opening into the offering room X. This room (X) is smaller than Y, and opens on the East into the same corridor. In the SW corner is the beginning of a shaft, and adjoining on the north is the beginning of a second shaft.
Photograph C19 shows the progress of this part of the work to date.
During the afternoon a big swarm of locusts passed over, travelling south. The air was full of them at intervals as high up as the eye could see.
Another ricochet struck near the lower camp during the afternoon, only a few feet from where I was standing. The newspapers today state that four Turkish soldiers have made their way across the Canal into Egypt. 250 Turkish Prisoners arrived in Cairo early yesterday morning. Another Earthquake in Italy is reported.
