Monday, March 8, 1915 (continued)
This was a day of rest for the men and very fortunately for them because there was a severe sandstorm all day.
Received a telegram from Dr. Reisner from Debba, Sudan, stating that he will arrive at Kareima Wednesday morning on his way back to Cairo.
Tuesday, March 9, 1915
Work was finished on the small mastabas in the east extension. In the debris was found a rough limestone block with an inscription. Most of the men were withdrawn from the work and set to collecting the railroad and cars which had been loaned to us by Dr. Reisner and stacking them neatly. We also began packing up our stuff to move to Mit Rahineh. Sent off a letter to Dr. Gordon about the work and enclosing several photographs. Also one to Mr. Coxe. Reis Mahmud returned from the city after dark; he had secured seven tents for £E 21. Which is not a bad price, considering the increased cost of materials. He had remained in the city over night and all today in order to get the tents packed up and shipped to Badreshein, the railway station of Mit Rahineh.
