Clearing sand from west side of mastaba 2080 [= G 1227], and from chambers and around smaller mastabas to west. In sand at top of ceremonial door at N.E. corner of mud-brick mastaba No. [left blank], a half-round “log” of limestone.
The entrance to a narrow long chamber about from southwest corner of mastaba 2080 [= G 1227] (the chamber joins onto and runs lengthwise of 2080 [= G 1227] to about middle of west side of 2080 [= G 1227]), was opened just before closing work and Reis Mahmoud and I crawled in over the sand. With the exception of the ceremonial door, it appears absolutely plain and devoid of contents. The chamber of limestone blocks with roofing slabs of the same material.
While at the excavations this morning a ricochet struck a few feet from us. I at once notified the sentry. He said it had passed over him. While working outside the mektab another ricochet struck just below the lower camp.
Letter to Fisher from Services des Antiquities that his request for part of the Tanis site had been refused. Telegraphed Fisher.
A letter came in the same mail from Mr. Farnall to Dr. Reisner saying that he thought Fisher would be granted part of the Tanis site.
