Diary Transcription: begin page 21
Tuesday, February 2, 1915 (continued)

Started clearing sand and hard-packed debris from north end of mastaba 3030, exposing a small part of S.W. corner of mastaba 3031.
A mild sandstorm all the afternoon with a hot south wind. Just before the men stopped work the wind increased in violence and for an hour we had a fierce sandstorm. I came up from excavations with my coat pulled up over my head. The air was full of locusts driven before the storm.
Receipt received from Imperial Ottoman Bank for Pt. 20,000 deposited by Vacuum Oil Co. to credit of H.U.B.M.F.A. account.
Wrote Mr. Carter, and also wrote 63 postcards to Museum and Essex friends.
