We had a south wind with a mild sand storm.

Fisher went with Reis Mahmud to make the final arrangements about the Mit Rahineh house. We are to take the house on trial for three months at the rate of £E 3 per month, and to start the yearly rate of £E 2 per month if we desire to lease the house. The rent is to be paid quarterly and three months notice is to be given if we desire to discontinue. Reis Mahmud then went into the Bazaars to purchase tents for the men to be used by them at Mit Rahineh. It is not advisable to quarter our men in the village as we want to keep our organization intact and as independent as possible of native local influences. This is especially true in the case of a village like Mit Rahineh. When Petrie worked here, he secured nearly all his laborers from this village and I understand that he lost a great many of his antiquities through theft. If necessary later we can secure boys as basket carries in the works.
Mr. Story continues recording the shafts in the cemetery.
