Day of rest for the men.
I left at 7:30 with Hafiz for Abusir and Sakkara. We followed the road on the edge of the desert, stopping first at the Pyramid of Abu Gurab, where the chief thing of interest was the nine alabaster basins where the bulls were sacrificed. From here I went directly to Sakkara, where I visited the Tombs of Ti, Mereruka, the Pyramid of King Onous, mastaba of Ptah-Hotep, and the Serapeum. Had lunch on the Terrace of Marriette’s house. After lunch we started back, stopping at the Pyramids of Abusir where I visited the mastaba of Ptah-Shepses. We came back through the green fields of the Nile Valley. I stopped to look at the Sphinx and went inside the Temple. Reached camp at 5. P.M.
Letter from C.C. Edgar that Dr. Reisner’s guards at Bersheh have had trouble with the police for carrying guns without a license.
