The shaft of 2091 [= G 3091] is still unfinished. The shafts A to E of 3000 are being cleared. C-D-E were finished today. The street between 3000 and 3010 is now cleared. In the sand here were fragments of a pottery plate, nearly complete, and four small fragments of another plate; also a large number of the little ceremonial jars and saucers. In 3010 the serdab was cleared and found to be empty. In the street between 3010 and 3020 was found a small fragment of inscribed limestone stele, which reads in part “Priest of Khum-khu-fu” =G16. In the debris over the south end of 3020 was found another fragments of the same stele, bearing the cartouche of Khu-fu, i.e. Cheops = G17. From the debris in shaft B of the same mastaba was still a third fragment G18, which joined up with the other two (G16-17). In 3011 was a serdab roofed with two large blocks of limestone. Photographs C21-22. The serdab was empty.
Today received a telegram from Mr. Fisher at Kerma asking for the main portion of the Comité letter in regard to Tanis, and this I wired him. Cold day with strong SW wind. Reported the Turks are retreating from the Canal.
