Wednesday, March 3, 1915

Fisher and I left shortly after 7 this morning with Reis Mahmud, Bechari, and Hafiz, for Mit Rahineh, stopping on the way at the Third Dynasty unfinished tomb (a T-shaped ditch about 100 feet deep in which is a fine red granite coffin with cover, and many large red granite blocks from the floor and casing) of the Pharaoh Nefer-ka-Ra, and the Pyramid of Kha-Ba and burial pits beyond. From there we went direct to Mit Rahineh where views were made of the site of Kom El-Qalama. Back to Gizeh through the Nile Valley.
