Wednesday, February 10, 1915 (continued)
Wrote Mr. Edgar in regard to the trouble with the guards at Bersheh, enclosing a letter to the police in charge at Bersheh, and a letter stating that the guards were protecting Dr. Reisner’s concession.
While going to the excavations this forenoon Reis Mahmud was stopped by the sentries. He explained to them as best he could that he was going to the works. When he insisted on passing and took hold of the horse’s bridle, the sentry snatched Reis’ stick and struck Reis across the hand and leg. I went down and straightened out the matter and afterwards wrote a letter to General Bridges, C.O. According to Reis one of the sentries said he might pass, but the one who struck him refused to let him by.
Said Hallaby left for Cairo on Monday to get a package of photographic materials for Mr. Fisher, and only got back this afternoon at 4 pm. Reis Mahmud was getting anxious and I think he had sent a man to the police.
Several light showers of rain this afternoon.
