Saturday, February 6, 1915
Finished clearing the two other shafts of mastaba 2090 [= G 3090]. As the original shaft B is merely part of A the other two shafts are lettered B and C, instead of C and D. In C, a single large block closed the entrance to the burial chamber which is to the east. The surface outside the entrance to the mastaba 2090 [= G 3090] has been cleared, together with a shaft, E, which was there. General clearing has also been done in the passage way along the west side of 2091 [= G 3091] and west and north of 2092 [= G 3093]. The burial shaft of 2091 [= G 3093] is not yet fully cleared. In shaft A of 2092 [= G 3092] was a limestone jar stopper with a good part of the plaster sealing still adhering to it.
Photograph C20 shows the various mastaba and shafts in the part of the work.
Showed two soldiers over the excavations; one of the mounted police told me that the First Brigade is to go on an eight days’ bivouac out into the desert, leaving here on the 8th. I have planned to go to Saqqara with the donkey-boy Hafiz.
