Diary Transcription: begin page 93
While staying on the dahabiyeh at Gezireh Sanborn and I went with the plans to the Giza Cemetery to add certain details of construction which had been omitted or were in question, especially in connection with the sequence of adjoining mastabas. While looking over the objects from our section of the Giza Cemetery, which were stored in one of Dr. Reisner’s houses, we found that the little statue of Mesty (G21) was missing. It transpired that a very fine offering niche was missing from Dr. Reisner’s own works. They were both probably taken at the same time, and by some of his own men, six of whom were dismissed on suspicion. During the past few weeks Dr. Reisner has been spending most of his time at the hospital in Cairo where his daughter was seriously ill with Typhoid Fever. The men had seized this relaxation of authority and were able to get the antiquities away long before the objects were missed.
