Day of rest for the men. We have been working all day on the records in preparation for the Kerma trip. It was decided this afternoon that, as Dr. Reisner wants plans of the excavations there, Fisher was to go up, and I am to carry on his work here. So for the next month or six weeks I shall be working for the Pennsylvania Museum. Fisher and I are to meet at Shellal early in March and see all the important sites down the river.
